Homestyle, homemade, just a great old fashioned cafe. Biscuits made from scratch, hand made hamburger patties, awesome grave for those delicious biscuits. My youngest declared her hamburger one of the best ever, and I agree. NOTE - cash only!

I just looked at their website and it looks like they're open every morning at 6AM. They are open for breakfast and lunch only.
