The possibilities are endless! We originally wanted to go to the breakfast place across the street, but we're glad we chose here instead. I got the Turkey BLT and it was delicious. My boyfriend got the Downhill, complete with pancakes, eggs, homefries, sausage, and bacon. I took a little taste and they were all delicious! Other diners were eating elaborate... More

Stopped here on our way home. Ordered just a simple egg over easy, hash and home fries, no toast as they did not offer anything gluten free. The also cannot do a poached egg for some reason. The eggs were great, the hash not so, and the potatoes were luke warm. Place wasn't all that clean either but it was... More

We had the pancakes, corned beef hash, hash browns, and scrambled eggs. Of those items, the best dish was the hash browns which were nicely seasoned. The corned beef was a non-traditional looking dish with cubed pieces of corned beef. The eggs and the pancakes with lacking in flavor. Since there aren't many breakfast eateries in the area, one may... More

A local recommended this place and the café across the street (directly across - Cafe at de Light). The local said this one was known for its homemade breads, the other had the better food. We were greated by a very unenthusiastic young lady who never smiled, never welcomed us, and just planted us at a table with the effort... More

The food selection was interesting with lots of vegetarian items, but the staff seemed completely unmotivated. We waited at the door for 15 minutes before anyone spoke to us. After our meal was put on the table, they brought the check immediately. We never got any more coffee or any more attention at all!

A good breakfast place and very fast service. Would go back again. If you like to be in and out so you can sight see, then this is the place!! You can order, get your food and be out quick or you can just relax and take your time.

Friend and I ate here for lunch. Both of our sandwiches were good and the menu has a lot to offer. The atmosphere was strange. When we went there was less than 10 people in the dining room and it was so quiet you could hear a pin drop. My friend and I felt like we couldn't even have a... More

My husband had the grilled roast beef on toasted rye. I had the oven-baked turkey with horse radish on toasted rye, which was the special of the day. Both were delicious. The food was served quick and the wait staff was efficient and friendly. The price was reasonable and it is on the main road. Visit the next door little... More

This is a small shop, but turnover and service were quick. I liked that you get your omelet any way you liked and could even experiment with creative pairings. The bacon was crisp, the sausage was seasoned well. The potatoes could have been crisper, and soft real butter for the English muffin would've helped. The window flower boxes were a... More
