Breakfast in Independence!

I love this restaurant for breakfast in Independence. It is always busy; a reflection that many others share my view. The biscuits and gravy are wonderful.

I've heard about this resturant from alot of the locals. (me being new to the area and all) I got the biscuits and gravy which I really enjoyed. They give you alot of food and it is decently priced. The servers are nice and helpful when asking for recommendations. Definately a place to visit.

Always good food and decent service. Nice atmosphere. Weekday mornings are not as crowded as the weekends can be.
