The food is great the atmosphere is very low key but the breakfast is what you go for. Friendly folks who know who you are and serve great food.

You have to be a regular to know how to use this restaurant because they do not help you! I walked in and a gentleman grunted hello, ... then took my order from behind the counter. Then he turned and left me. Didn't tell me to get my own coffee or have a seat, ... just left me! I choose... More

The service was excellent and you can watch your food being prepared. The atmosphere was clean but very dated. Ordered breakfast 2 eggs with sausage and potatoes for $8.00, the cost seems a bit high compared to other breakfast specials in the area (around $5.00). The potatoes tasted good but too greasy for me. After breakfast I was served with... More

Just discovered this gem. Excellent breakfast and lunch menu. They provided excellent service. We paid cash. I don't believe they accept cards.

The moment I walked through the door I was greeted warmly. I didn't even have to read the menu, the chef asked how I liked my breakfast, offering options (including peameal bacon!). The eggs were (by choice) perfectly over easy, the peameal bacon was excellent, and the hashbrowns were very good. The restaurant itself is small and the walls are... More

If you're a breakfast lover with a healthy appetite, this is definitely the place to go. The best hash browns ever, copious amount of peameal bacon and eggs always cooked to perfection! We recently went somewhere else for breakfast and were immediately upset with ourselves for not sticking to Bud's. There's fresh home made soup every day as well. Juicy... More
