Cute restaurant near courthouse. We had the Bailey's Breakfast Sandwich. Bacon, egg, cheese avocado, arugala and sliced tomato on a homemade Bailey's Cheese Bun. It's the best creation we have had in a long time. Service and coffee were wonderful.

Stopped in for breakfast on a college trip to Feather River College. Great omelets, big enough to share depending on your appetite with outside seating in front by the grape arbor and flower beds. Had a nice chat with the owners while waiting for the...More
