The Blue Hen Café is a mixture between Diner and Cafe. You get a refill Coffee and the Coffee tastes good. Try the eggs and the tasty peach butter.

Visited this place on a Sunday morning around 11am. Was told there would be a 25-30 minute wait and we were okay with that. It turned out to only be about 15 minutes which was perfect. Our group got the California burrito, the breakfast burrito,...More

If you're having a laid back Saturday morning, just bring something to read and have a nice relaxing wait. It will be worth it.
