I was in a hurry and looking for gluten free breakfast options. I did not find any but the Pantry on Park has great omlettes like "the pantry" which as name implies has a lot in it. Hot chocolate is free refills like coffee. Service was friendly and attentive. Decor is comfortable and warm. Open for lunch and dinner also.... More

I actually just ate here for the first time last week. I suspect I now know what lots of other locals already did.... great food, pleasant staff, bright building and no "fry cook" odors. The building temperature was also perfectly pleasant. The eight of us ordered a variety of breakfast foods and they were all delicious. The waffle was crisp,... More

One of our favorite places to stop for breakfast or lunch. The portions are always healthy and the food is is very good. The staff is nice and need some improvement, however I go there for the food and I bring my own great company, my wife. Let's not forget the home made pies, whice are awesome.

The service is friendly and fast. The breakfast is great tasting and filling. They do their best to accommodate special orders. The prices are moderate.

This is a GREAT place to go if you like home cooking and generous portions! The food is fantastic and the service is friendly and welcoming. The pancakes are the kind that fill your whole plate! And if you like fruit syrups, you MUST try the Homemade Berry Syrup! It is DELICIOUS and the BEST I've ever had!

This is a throw back type of place where you can get a breakfast like Grandma used to fix. They have a lot of good combinations and choices but I liked the Hay Stack Potato Pancakes with sour cream & chives. They do breakfast, lunch and dinner and obviously have a steady stream of local folks belling up to the... More

Here for the first time my husband had the two egg breakfast with bacon. I had the veggie omelette with bacon added, a suggestion for our server. We sat on the patio and everything met our satisfaction. Would return again.

This is a great homespun restaurant. Large portions, tastes like your grandma cooked in the kitchen. The staff and hostess were so friendly. They ran a wait on Saturday morning, but they constantly told you they were working on a table, so nice. I had the country fried steak. It was great. My friend had the waffle with strawberries and...
