They were already sold out of donuts by 8:00 a.m. We had to get cinnamon rolls but they were delicious and really big!

We stopped here on our way out of town just as they were closing. They welcomed us in with smiles and made our breakfast which was amazing! The omelets are big and the ticket was small! Very friendly people we will definitely eat breakfast there every time we go!!

Although there was a good crowd, it wasn't like standing room. In fact,no wait at all. We ordered oatmeal and a breakfast taco. That's it. 50 minutes! Oatmeal was like mush. We did get plenty of coffee. When we went to pay with credit card, the lady was like .""" Oh I don't know how to do this". So waited... More

Delicious breakfast - pancakes are the best! Friendly staff, quaint little restaurant, good prices. Big fireplace in the center of the room keeps things warm in the winter.

We enjoyed our breakfast of eggs, bacon, hash browns, toast and biscuits. The owner is so friendly. We were too late for the great donuts. Go early! The hash browns were a little overdone, but plentiful!

We appreciate your business. Sorry we missed on the hash browns. As you can tell from other reviews we are a little hit and miss on those. Give us another chance next time you are in town! More

Wow just wow where to start. Waiting 8 min for someone to recognise we are waiting at the "please wait to be seated" sign, after I throw my arms up in "what the heck motion" then the two behind the counter say oh she will be right with you even though they weren't doing anything at the time.

I noticed the name changed from previous visits so decided to try it again this trip. The place was cleaner and the service from start to finish was courteous and helpful. New management, ownership or both have to be behind this positive change for the better.

Same owner for 19 years, same cooking tandem for 15 years, same core employees for 14 years. Don't know when you last visited but glad you came in this time. I personally oversee the cleaning, so if there is an issue in that department, just let us know. Please come again. More

My husband really liked the fresh made cinnamon rolls and I really enjoyed the fresh cut hash-browns (a first for me). The owner is a hard worker AND a hoot!
