We go mainly for breakfast and the food is good and fresh. The wait staff in Salem work hard to serve each customer. Amanda is our favorite waitress.

We visit frequently for breakfast but lunch and dinner are very good. Food is freshly prepared and arrives at table hot. Sausage gravy is a personal favorite. Omelets and eggs are prepared to order. Lunch favorites are Chefs salad. Very clean restaurant with friendly staff.

My husband and I go there once a week for breakfast only. Good breakfast specials for reasonable prices...many include beverage. Stay away if the parking lot is full. The service is very slow when busy.
