Home cooking!

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.

Harold and Cathy's is next door to my office. I have been going there for over twenty years and the food has always been awesome, the service is super quick and the prices are great. Look for the specials and the breakfast rocks.

This unassuming, family run cafe is the place for breakfast or lunch. Don't plan on dinner as they close at 2pm. Their food is plentiful and delicious. From hamburger to any type of sandwich you will not go wrong. This good home cooking. We order from Harold and Cathy's quite often.

The breakfast is just what it should be in a small privately owned greasy spoon diner. The biscuits and gravy are perfect, eggs were made perfect, and even the low quality truckstop style coffe was decent. VERY fast service. This is my new favorite breakfast spot and is a refreshing change from the overpriced Silver Diner.

Although it has been a while since eating there I been going for over 10 years, It is a small place with very good home cooked style food. I wish my work schedule would change so I can eat there again.

I haven't been here in over 2 years because I once thought they were ho-hum. Today however we enjoyed our breakfast a lot. You serve yourself coffee and no waitstaff come around but the patrons are very friendly.
