Morning warm up

Just stopped for a cup of coffee & hot chocolate. Surprised, upon entering not only a café, but we're able to add a little zip to our cups of java. Friendly atmosphere, food looked great will have to stop for breakfast the next time.

We went there for breakfast with another couple. Had a variety of meals and all raved about theirs. My sausage was the best I have ever eaten. Waitress was friendly and more than efficient.

Food was excellent. I had the Eggs Benedict and also the Biscuits and gravy, both were fantastic. They have a specialty drink of a Bloody Mary, one of the best I've ever had, homemade mix. The cinnamon rolls are fresh and to die for.

Our mission was Bloody Mary and Brunch. They exceeded expectations. The Bloody Mary was probably the best mix I ever had. Great toppings, lots of flavor, perfect! Food was good. Cherry on the top was our server SOL. Sol was awesome. Gave first class treatment and by the end of the service she was part of the crew. I would... More

The food was great and, for me, it was enough to share or not depending on your appetite. My friends enjoyed the venue and the friendly staff. I'm definitely going here I again!

We stopped in for lunch when we had family in town. They serve a nice selection of sandwiched or you can get breakfast all day. We all chose breakfast. The food was good along with the service The prices were fair as well.

We generally visit Bruce and his crew weekly for breakfast/lunch. It's always good food, at reasonable prices, served by friendly folks in clever t-shirts! Try it - you'll like it - and the "Hobo Hash" is to die for!

Leisurely breakfast diner feel with more of a local flare even though it's on the tourist strip. Both of us were very pleased with the food and the owner (our waitress lol) was very personable and friendly. We'll visit again!
