We had breakfast at this quaint little cafe. The eggs Benedict was amazing. Far better than the usual fair.

Corner beef hash terrible! Who would put tomatoes in corned beef hash? Hash browns...ugh...soggy..white..not cooked! Sausage links..afraid to eat them...not browned and soggy! Home fries? Really...not browned..no onions or peppers in them...just little undercooked squares of potatoes! If you want a good Bloody Mary ok...just don't order an overpriced..undercooked...terrible breakfast!

We first ate here several years ago and found it to be acceptable. I've waited a week to post this as I wanted to allow some time to pass so that I could give a fair review.

The food has gone downhill...hot turkey sandwich..yuk! Turkey dried out..served on French bread that was old and should have been used for French toast...skimpy gravy...tasted like leftovers that were left over too long. The prices are up...the food has gone down...way down!
