“Worst cafe ever”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

We stayed at the hotel near this cafe and as it was so close decided to give it a try. We were the only customers there and I can understand why. The food we had was terrible. The worst meal we've had in the states Also the worst coffee and service. Would definitely not go there again

Wow, sure wish you would have let your server know or ask for myself! We do strive to please! I am sure we have the best coffee in town! Great food and service:). For future knowledge, you should always let someone know when things are not right!

“Great place to eat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

We were staying nearby and decided to walk there for breakfast before going home. Great selection of breakfast foods on menu. Waitress could have been more friendly but the cashier was very pleasant and friendly. Breakfast was under $10.00. Located on main road so it is convenient. Nice place with great food and reasonable prices.

“JUST feel at home....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

Easy going...coffee and juice in your table in seconds... Them one of the ladies (Owner?) comes to your table and presents 6 or more breakfast menus including steak and eggs, pancakes, waffles and in less than five minutes you have a delicious breakfast in fron of you for less than $10. It opens at 06:00 and it is the place at this time in the morning. It also serves lunch and dinner but we did not stay long enough. Congratulations for a job well done.

“Great place to eat - breakfast starts at 5 am, too!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

Great young staff, good food for a good price, and local. Support this place! Located on the main road into town, and convenient to the two major places to stay, Rod & Gun and other one down the road. Clean, fresh and fun atmosphere.
