This is our favorite breakfast stop. We walked the length of Red River just to eat breakfast. Such a large and varied menu. The wait staff is so friendly.

Couldn't have ask for a better place to make our last stop before leaving Red River!! The owner and staff were the friendliest in town and the breakfast delicious. They welcomed us and visited with our grandchildren the entire time we were there. They even let my husband bring his guitar and harmonica in the restaurant and sing a few... More

Breakfast is all the do, and they do it well. Service is fast and the food is hot and fresh. They have a pretty wide menu, but very basic.

Good, basic, food and the staff tried really hard. Can't put my finger on why I didn't take to this place. Give it a try because it might suit you.

We stopped by on our way out of town to grab something for a quick breakfast. The service was great and the staff made sure that we had everything we needed before heading out the door. To top it all off, the donuts were delicious! Will definitely visit again

We were there maybe three times in July because it was one of the few places open in the morning. There is a dish called something like "the hill top", it was so good! They have a pastry called the sombrero which is huge and also tastes really good. One of the times we almost did not get a pastry... More

Stopped in here upon the recommendation of the Barista at The Way who said that the breakfast here was quite good. I found it to be a very poor experience from start to finish. I entered and stood by the "Please wait to be served" sign and no one greeted me for a number of minutes. The staff averted their... More
