We had breakfast here several times during our week long stay at Massanutten. The staff is very friendly and the prices are very reasonable. Very convenient to Massanutten Resort.

We were there for a quick lunch. They had peanut soup, which I had never heard of. The loaded potato soup was homemade and delicious. My husband had the chili nachos and they were great. A typical cafe, industrial decorating.

We stopped for breakfast after leaving Massanutten. I had eggs and country ham with biscuits and potatoes. My husband and daughter had pancakes, personally I thought the pancakes were a little mealy, not fluffy. The biscuits were good and the country ham was great! Service was good and folks were friendly for sure!

We had breakfast here and it wasn't too busy. It is rather small inside but everyone seems so busy. The food was pretty good. I ordered over medium eggs and ended up with overdone. Outside of that it was your average home cooked breakfast. Friendly staff, clean environment and home cooking is a must stop by if traveling through or... More

The redskin potatoes were light and crispy, biscuits were fluffy and warm, and the omelet was perfection. I've never had smoked Gouda in an omelet but this won't be the last time. Our server Debra was friendly and efficient and didn't hover but seemed to be right there at the right time. The place was super clean and welcoming. Truly... More

Anytime I'm in the area, I'll stop by and order a hotdog and macaroni and cheese. I like my hotdogs just plain and they toast the rolls. Just the way I like them.

We had a very good breakfast. The portions were large and the food was reasonably priced. The place was crowded but the service was still good.
