Love the atmosphere here and the staff is always extremely nice. On top of that the food is great and, with the southern-style twist to the meals, offers something different from traditional diner fare.

Lots of options for breakfast - we particularly enjoy the egg dishes with their yummy potatoes. Great atmosphere (especially if you like roosters). Lots of space for any sized group.
