Stopped after doing some work at the hospital. Food was excellent, but Annette our server was outstanding. Pretty cool that they have a 15% discount for Veterans.

We frequent here a lot, get there early so the food is fresher obviously. Or you can order your eggs and toast fresh which we choose to do. Nice selection and really good service.

Enjoy the breakfast buffet. They have reduced the items on the buffet but still enough to satisfy. Service is good and love that they support Christian ministries.
