Very yummy breakfast with a white board full of specials to choose from. Endless cup of coffee. Wait staff exceptionally friendly and attentive. Really made us feel like regulars.

Food is good and plentiful. There were 4 of us for breakfast. We all ordered something different. The food arrived together and was hot. It was a pleasant experience from the moment we entered the door. A cheerful greeting. Excellent waitress and plenty of hot coffee. I highly recommend a visit here. 😃

The atmosphere is great - everyone works together (including the owner) to be sure you... More

We eat lunch there 2-3 times a week . Barbara is not just a cook but a real "CHEF" and comes up with different foods every day. The waitresses are by far the best around.
