For those of us who "brunch" rather that wake at dawn to climb mountains or challenge the river's rushing white water, this is the place for you! Good service, good food and great hours serving breakfast for those of us who like to sleep in! Five stars *****!

Great experience, good food, good service and not too pricey. Had a good breakfast, pancakes are great, eggs are good. COFFEE. Huckleberry syrup. TRICK, put it in your coffee to flavor it, YUM. Really like the atmosphere and just a nice place to go before the park!

First of all, the owner greeted us and made us feel very welcome. She even remembered how many were in our party when the first person walked in the door the 2nd day. They are very busy but they try to get you seated promptly, then bring a carafe of water and serve coffee to anyone that wants it, right... More

We were here 3 years ago. It was very good and we returned several times. This year we only went once. One person in our party ordered the ham sandwich. The menu said it was stacked high with ham. WRONG! He actually told the waitress that he had received someone else's meal. The sandwich might have had 2 thin slices... More

Well I thought at first the prices were a little high for bacon and eggs with a side of hash browns. And then the plates came....Wow. I'm not sure how 2 eggs bacon hash browns and toast can fill up a HUGE platter but they serve it that way and it does fill you up. And it was great. I... More

We had about a 15 minute wait for breakfast - a good sign that good food is to come. Food was very good and huge portions. I recommend only ordering 2 pancakes - I ordered 3 and barely made it half way in! They bring out 2 different types of syrup - warm! They leave the coffee pot on the... More
