Stopped in at 7 am after full night of plowing. This was my third time for breakfast. Ham and cheese omelet was fantastic. Perfect cooking, ingredients great quality, and HOT. Home fries are sliced potatoes fried, a little on greasy side but very good. Need just a bit more time in the pan. Very good coffee. Service was fast, courteous... More

This restaurant owned by a friend who has had it for awhile. She is soon going to retire and will sell. Excellent food, service, and friendly patrons. A local eatery where friends gather to talk and eat. Highly recommended!!

Been there twice for breakfast ... not sure how you can serve eggs and pancakes with little or no flavor. It appears they are known for their sausage and gravy over biscuits. Menu lacks any kind of uniqueness. Not one of our favorite places.

A nice place for a good breakfast or diner style food. Noisy because it is busy. Busy because it is good. One of the few places open on Sunday.
