All the food is great. Specializing in comfort food. Can't say enough about the Chicken Tortilla Soup AND the Chocolate Chip cookies that you can buy by the bag!!

This family owned hometown cafe was a deligthful. We set out to find a place that served pie and so directed there by our cell phone. Would never have found it without navigation device but worth the trip. The first night we had soup and pie. My friend had chocolate pecan and I had cherry with ice cream. The second... More

The thing i... More

Food was pretty good. Pie I had was nothing special. It was pudding on crust! I would eat there again but it's nothing to rave over.

The booths are showing their age and several have rips and tears in the leather. The server, Chris, was especially friendly, courteous and helpful. My ham and... More

Eating here is like taking a seat in Grandma's kitchen. Good basic fare, friendly small town service and a pie for everyone's taste.

Good, home-town, country-kitchen feel restaurant that we picked as it was really close to our motel. We went here for dinner after long day at nearby Legoland. They served breakfast all day, have a nice selection of lunch/dinner items, a kid's menu and a big selection of pies. The serve was speedy and friendly; the atmosphere was cozy and comfortable...
