Two friends and I stopped here. Friendly service, food prepared from scratch, delicious home made chicken noodle soup. And a wonderful coconut cream pie!! No credit cards here, there is an ATM next door but prices reasonable enough that we didn't need to use it.

Most recent visit was for lunch, delicious. Home made chicken soup made me think I was eating at grandmas again. Tasty lunch menu items. The meat loaf was great. Bring cash or be prepared to get cash from the bar atm next door.
