Great place to eat! Great staff, especially Candy and Stefanie. Great food, always to order. One suggestion though, add grits and outmeal to the menu....keep up the good work.

i have been going here on my bi-annual visits for over 25 years. I have never been disappointed. The Same waitstaff is still there. So they are aging a bit but still friendly and efficient. Great food for a reasonable price!

On vacation, stopped in for breakfast. I knew we were on to something when the place was packed. Good food, good service, fair price. I had egg benedict, wife had the breakfast sampler plate. Both meals very good, plan to go back in the morning. Highly recommend!

I had a coney dog that was good, my friend had a Reuben which was good, friendly wait staff, good location, parking is hard to find and expensive, at least on the day we went. Will go back on a return trip.

We stopped by there to grab a quick bite as it was getting close to dinner time. We just ordered hot dogs and I've never had such large hot dogs in my life. They were good but not outstandingly good. Quaint little shop. The salads we had were fresh and delicious.
