Local's hangout

Food is good; atmosphere very relaxed; super crowded on weekends; great low prices. This small cafe is a very casual place that draws all the locals. Eating out front is most in demand; eating inside is extremely limited; patio in back with cast iron tables and chairs is the biggest area.

I had a breakfast dish called Kepplers- eggs scrambled on an English muffin, tomato, avocado, bacon w/ hollandaise sauce on top, I had them put the sauce on the side. It was outstanding. My husband ordered eggs, sausage and French toast, the French toast was really good.

We had Sunday breakfast here. Got there just on time. The place has a sign up sheet for tables out front. Great service. Food was average. I think it's more like the "happening place" in town. Fun to sit back and watch while sipping a good cup of coffee.

Good food, good service. Friendly staff. It's nice to sit outside in the fresh air and enjoy a good meal. I try to get over there as often as I can.

Great place to have breakfast - great eggs and pancakes and very reasonably priced. I like to wait to get a table outside on Main St where you can people watch as you eat.

We stopped in on a Saturday for breakfast, and the place was packed. Sarah, who was doing the seating was charming, even though patrons were demanding and pressuring her. Talk about grace under pressure! The food was great, and one of the best breakfasts around (come hungry) and the history of this little place is interesting. Family owned and attention... More

Great food, friendly staff, and wonderful location. We went twice for breakfast over a five day vacation. Good portions and delicious.

One of the best breakfasts you can find on Main Street. Lots of food, lots of variety. Be sure to get there early on the weekends or when the weather is nice, or you will wait 30 min or longer. Outside sidewalk seating is the best!

5 a.m., it 's open for breakfast...table available outside, front and back and a few tables inside...reasonable prices for traditional breakfasts, i.e., eggs/fried hash browns, breakfast meats...service could be faster, but you are there to be leisurely served...recommend at least once, if from out of town...closes at 2 p.m.
