We had a quick lunch, ordered beef dips for the two of us. Was pleasantly surprised with the side of potato salad, homemade and delicious. The beef dip had good quality beef on a fresh roll. Very good. The portions are a little small, but just right for us.

We stopped in here for breakfast and it was very good. The atmosphere was pleasant and the service was very good. We had the usual breakfast but it was tasty and the pancakes are huge. Stop here for breakfast, you'll like it.

The food was good. They forgot my wife's toast but that was okay with her. She wouldn't have ate it.
