Very nice people and great service and atmosphere. Place is always busy so be there early. Breakfast menu is a little small but food is good very fluffy pancakes and great biscuits n gravy. Perfect bacon.

Everything about their breakfasts is great -- I can't say much more than that! But one of my favorite things about this place is that they served liver & onions. NONE of my family will eat it, so I never make it, but I love it, and here, it's made like my mama used to make it! It comes with... More

Stopped by this restaurant for lunch and it did not disappoint, had a great lunch with their daily soup and sandwhich and it hit the spot. Many nice items on the menu for lunch and all seemed very tasty. The restaurant is very quaint and inviting with home style seating throughout, the service was excellent. will return again very soon... More

This is a tasty breakfast place, good selection of breakfast items. The waffles were amazing, bacon thick and crispy. Coffee was pretty good, the portions were a good size. Our waitress was friendly, checked on us a few times. If you have some time I'd definitely recommend you stop in for breakfast. We had about a 30 minute wait on... More

Stopped in here on a Sunday morning for breakfast. There was already a bit of a wait but the line moved quickly. There is a coffee bar available to pour your own coffee while you wait. Once seated, a few pieces of Crumb Coffee Cake was placed on the table to snack on. Very good stuff. The French Toast and... More

What great food to choose from! Our family stopped in for lunch and everybody got something different, nobody was disappointed. Next we tried the Buttermilk & Key Lime Pie for dessert.....so good!

The breakfast offering is always tasty. We have been several times and continue to return. I will agree with others that the wait staff is just barely ok.

Nice, small and clean. Good customer service. Food was good. Sourdough bread was the best! Got there on a Thursday morning at 830. No wait.

wait staff needs guidance and training. received the appetizer with the entree. staff informed us that the bread was still cooking. Harvest Squash soup would have been good if it were served hot. Disappointed overall.
