In the area for work and some people who have been coming here for years suggested it to the group. Perfect place for a comfortable breakfast. I ordered the special (2 Eggs, Toast, Home Fries, Meat (Ham-my choice, Bacon or Sausage) along with a cup of coffee. Exactly what I want. It would cost you about $12.00 in a hotel... More
