“Down Home Cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

This place was classic small town cafe. Awesome breakfast for a good price with waitress that really worked efficiently. The hours are limited but they do what they do well, then shut down.

“Delicious breakfasts, good prices, friendly service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Had brunch here on a weekend recently. It's a no-frills place, but the food is good and plentiful and the service is friendly and quick. Highly recommend it for families.

“Awful”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

Waited a long time to order and to receive our order. The waitress wasn't very nice and the pancakes and waffles were rubbery and undercooked.
Won't be back - IHOP is better.
