Excellent service! Food was delicious! We had French toast, biscuits and gravy, breakfast burritos, and pancakes. Everything was excellent! Doesn’t look like much on the outside but definitely a hidden gem!

We enjoyed breakfast here one Sunday while visiting family. The food was wonderful and the owners were extremely friendly. I would definitely recommend eating here, but be sure and check their hours before you go.

One of the best places to have breakfast in Allen. A definite must stop when I pay a visit to my brother. Everything is made from scratch and the food is absolutely delicious, I never had anything disappointing. I recommend the pancakes and omelette.

I'm sure this is a great breakfast place. I was there for lunch and had the French Dip. It was nothing special and the fries were a bit overdone, but the experience was good. My friends enjoyed their meals, and I'd give it another shot...if I was in the area. Plenty of parking, which is a big plus.More

I had migas and liked the jalapeños but they did not cut up tortillas and toast them gently and then add eggs. They used chips. It was an American rendition of migas. My husband enjoyed the Spinach Omelet since there was no California Omelette on...the menu but they probably would have prepared one if we had asked. The first coffee cup was not well washed but they switched it for a clean one quickly.More

We order from here frequently, the food is amazing and they serve breakfast open to close. I usually have a large order and call ahead to place it to give them time, bur one lady is always audible when it come to her dislike of...my large orders, usually a huge sigh and a "Gawwwwd". Everyone else seems happy when I get there to pick up. Delicious homemade biscuits, thick bacon, chicken fried steak is great.More

We came here looking for comfort food and that’s what we found. The service is friendly and attentive and the meal selection is solid. The husband ordered chicken fried steak and I got the Salisbury steak. Both were excellent. We have gone back twice and...have had their homemade soups, breakfasts and sandwiches. Every time our meals were served quickly, they were delicious and the servers were polite and helpful. I strongly recommend you try this place if you want straight forward country/homemade style meals. Sometimes that’s just what we need!More
