Very good breakfast and doughnuts. They have good coffee too. Perfect early morning stop. It was a little busy this last weekend, and only 2 waitress's They needed one more. That's my only complaint, but it won't stop me from eating there next time.

The first thing you smell are the wonderful donuts. The smell alone brings you into the restaurant. The entire staff are friendly and ready to fill your order. The Mountain Top breakfast is to die for. The cinnamon rolls are a must. They are wonderfully light and fluffy.

The restaurant was closed during the "off season". Yes, it is for sale, but there was also a sign on the door informing folks it would open Memorial weekend. Making donuts 6 days a week, open for full breakfast 7 days a week. More

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
