Great breakfast and great ambiance. The place was totally decked out in Christmas decorations. The restaurant is just off Lake Mary Boulevard and doesn't stand out real well. Very friendly staff.

Breakfast was awesome. Scrambled eggs seasoned just right and home fries were like mom used to make. But the bacon was awesome. If you love bacon please do not miss this bacon mecca. Perfect thickness and texture was teasingly delightful.Flavor like I have never tasted before.It`s worth the try. I can`t wait to go back. Only next time I`ll get... More

A couple of guys from work that grew up in Lake Mary suggested to try it out. It has a small-town cafe feel to it and the staff was friendly and laid back. I hate it when the serving staff checks in with you every 3 minutes when you're eating and interrupting your conversations. I had the Reuben sandwich which... More

I visited for breakfast on a Sunday morning about 9am and was surprised the place wasn't jam packed like many places tend to be on Sunday morning for breakfast. We were seated right away. I had the country bowl, a combination of potatoes, eggs, cheese, sausage, etc. all mixed together in a bowl. The portion size was enough for 2... More

We have lived in this area for a long time. Sunday was the first time we went here. The food was absolutely terrible. I had scrambled eggs, hash browns and a biscuit. All of the food was very greasy, the biscuit was soaked in grease on the bottom, worst biscuit I ever had. It was kind of flat and soggy... More

It's holloween time, you need to bring the kids and see the decor. While you are there enjoy the best breakfast you can get anywhere, the hash browns are fresh potatoes not freeze dried like most places.

In my first review, I gave this restaurant 4 stars because we went at Christmas and I loved the decorations. The food and service were average. However, I felt I really needed to post this follow-up review due to a return visit in October. On our second visit, we also sat out on the patio. However, this time the service... More

Great service and down-home food at a laid-back restaurant - until it's time to decorate for the holidays. Then it's no hold barred! Although October and December are the best times to visit for the every-inch-covered decorations, good food is always in season here. Plain and simple, but yummy and filling.

The food is just average. I haven't been wowed by the food and I have eaten there several times. There is an outdoor patio. Service is good. They decorate for Halloween and Christmas and it is worth a trip there just to see this! They do an excellent job on decorations. For Halloween the servers dress in costume also. Bring... More
