They are not open for dinner. Their vegetable beef and bean and ham soups are amazing. Portions are nice and... read more

This one room restaurant has it figured out. They are only open for breakfast and lunch. Lunch does not start before 11:00. The breakfast is fresh and satisfying to all.

Harold & Cathy's is a very nice diner . The food is very good . They usually have 2 daily specials to choose from along with the regular menu. If you like home cooking, you will love this place.

This kind of cafe is hard to find these days with all of the restaurant chains in the area. If you are looking for home cooking, friendly service, and a gathering place for locals, this is the place. Open for breakfast and lunch only.
