This restaurant came up in a review and my daughter and I decided to check it out. When we arrived , restaurant was packed and there was a line. It was definitely worth the wait. Try out the Mexican Omelette. The tingle it leaves on your tongue was great. The pie shakes are very good. Must try item.

Had a great breakfast with lots of character and decor, and very friendly service. Apparently this is the place to go from college students, to farmers, to politicians. Down home service and the food is home-sized servings. Close to the beautiful down town/ campus area. Not to be missed!!

This is a very casual diner. The food was very good and the service quick and cheerful. Try the Bison burger. Steak was also good. There are gluten free options available. The gluten free bluberry pie was sensational.

Three out of four of us had breakfast, which is served all day. Everything was very good. Service was quick. It was very busy. I would definitely go back sometime.
