Local restaurant

If you are looking for a place the locals eat, this is the one. Great waffles and bacon, eggs, fried potatoes, and sourdough toast. Coffee hot and strong. Easy to find and always busy!!!!

Luke warm breakfast served after long waits is the norm for this breakfast hangout. Staff are friendly but the food needs improvement.

Stopped for lunch while in town. Hubby had crab cakes and I had the soup/salad combo. He enjoyed the crab cakes; said they had good flavor, but not much crab. My combo was okay; menu said a bowl of soup and I got a cup. Service was very good.

This family owned café is small and in a great location. The owner, Rick, and his employees are very friendly. The service is fast and the breakfast food is always good.

We love this little diner. It reminds me of the ones from up north when I was little. Family owned, friendly staff, quaint breakfast spot. Sometimes hard to even get a table. Best coffee in town! Our favorites are the pancakes, biscuits and gravy and the breakfast sandwiches.

The service was very attentive as well as the breakfast. The coffee cup was never less than half full.
