We stopped for breakfast and we're pleasantly surprised with this resturant's friendly atmosphere and good service. The portions were large and the food was very good. Try this place and you won't be disappointed!

This is a nice Cafe just off the highway. It has good comfort food. It is fairly priced, with really good service. The iced tea is very good, along with whatever they serve. You cannot go wrong with a meal from here. Thanks

We've made the drive probably 8-10 times over the last 3 months since first trying, and have always been satisfied. The breakfasts are good, lunch is good, and the service is good and friendly!

While traveling north, we stopped for breakfast. It was ok but nothing special. Bacon very fatty, out of sourdough toast and would you believe oatmeal? Hardly anyone in there at 9. Server was very friendly.
