We visit the restaurant for the first time and if we had live closer, we would go back! The service was good, the decoration was really great and the food was nice and pleased us all. Ordered breakfast, soup, chicken and club sandwich and we were all satisfied and happy when we left the restaurant. Can recommend a visit!

This was my first time here & we will definitely go back. The young waitress was efficient & friendly. Everyone in my group enjoyed their meal & it is very reasonably priced. Cute decor, too.

This is my second time here, the food is awesome. Downfall....is the miserable old waitress. We had to ask for everything, creamer, milk, coffee refill. If they keep someone as miserable as her on staff business will for surely go down.
