One of my favorites in Valpo. Great food, friendly service and nice place to eat and relax. I had the cinnamon swirl French toast and my wife had the strawberry pancakes. Food came out quickly and was terrific. Love going here.

Local, inexpensive, fast and friendly service, solidly decent food. Just came across it while on the road. What more could I ask for? I had the cinnamon swirl french toast and was very happy with it. Liked the family atmosphere.

The busser they have working the floor is amazing and he received a separate tip for his hard work. Just wish the food would have been as good. The... More

This is a good place for breakfast. Standard breakfast fare is well prepared and prices are reasonable. Servings are generous and service is good. I recommend.

A good place to go for breakfast. When my Dad was alive he ate there most everyday and they always made him up so hamburgers wrapped in paper to give to his dog when he got back in the car. Nice people work there.
