“Fantastic friendly place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

We went to this restaurant twice in one day. We called in for coffee - the owner was so friendly and, even though we were just passing through she gave us both a hug before we left. So after our walk around town we went back for lunch. The food was good, hot and the service was fast and friendly. I agree with the previous reviewer - never seen so many people get a hug! No wonder people come back. It was great and we will visit next time we are in town.

“Mom and Pop Stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

I always recommend this place to family and friends-- they have been in town for years and the owners always greet new and old customers with a friendly smile or a hug. The food here is amazing-- fresh breads and homemade everything, Make sure to get a cookie on the way out-- you wont be sorry you did!

“Adorable place for lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

Such a unique find in Plant city! I love the "old time" atmosphere and the location in the heart of historic downtown. Food is terrrific and service is very friendly. I've never seen so many people hug eachother as they were greeted by staff and other diners! Love it here!
