We stopped here to try their Clam Chowder & we weren’t disappointed. The Chowder was very good with lots of clams and the waitress was very nice and the service was fast! We’ll have no hesitation coming again.

We were happy to find a restaurant that opened at 6:30 a.m. so we could start our day. No ambiance here, but it was clean, breakfast was good and staff was friendly.

One of my favorites among many of the old-school, off-the-interstate Mom & Pop diners. God, I LOVE stopping at places like this and then adding them to my "to do" list for when I next travel in that area. This is The Palm Cafe in...More
