    I go there for breakfast fairly often. The last time was a month ago. I almost always order the same thing -- poached eggs, hash, side of sauteed spinach. It was all good, along with the coffee, and the service was fine.

      Do you know anything about their Lunch/Dinner? Or heard from others?

        I haven't been there for dinner in a really long time, but I remember it being good for what it is. I seem to remember that they had a turkey dinner special for dinner when I was there last. Turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, a square piece of stuffing, and cranberry sauce. Pretty standard diner fare, no better or worse than Elmo's or Breadmen's. I mostly go to Rick's for breakfast.

          It was pretty standard (Elmo's-type) diner fare the one time I went in there for dinner. I love classic Southern food, but this was more Americana (think beef stroganoff-type stuff) and much heavier on the fat. Even weirder was that we were the only people in the restaurant under the age of 70, and only three or four other tables were occupied. Piccadilly's crowd is "young buck" compared to that!

        Went there for breakfast today and it turns out they're moving! They'll be on Shannon Road in the shopping strip that includes the Post Office.
