Nice variety on the menu - very kid-friendly! The fruit bowl is huge and the kid mac-n-cheese was perfect!

Went there for breakfast and had a vegetable omelet. The omelet was ok at minus a long strand of our server's rainbow colored hair. I found the omelet with too much vegetable juice left behind. The booth seats could use being redone. The wait staff worked well with each other.

Driven by this place for years and always thought the strip mall it was located in looked kind of sketchy. Finally decided to give it a try and I was pleasantly surprised. Service was quick, waitress was attentive and the food was great! Its cash only so come prepared unless you want to use the atm in the even sketchier... More

I couldn't get over how weird this place was. I get going for a quirky, at home kind of look with the mismatched coffee mugs, and tables and chairs, but they could at least not all look like something pulled of the "free curb". The food was your typical breakfast food, but with less care. The home fries are just... More

Well, the food is bland and boring and the home fries are just fried pieces of potato. But, the owner is just obnoxious. I ordered my poached eggs cooked medium. When they came out, the whites were runny. The waitress was very understanding when I politely asked for them to be cooked more. A few minutes later, the owner retuned... More

The breakfast and service here is fit for a king and second to none.If your looking for a wholesome and hearty homestyle breakfast this is the place.The country fried steak was amazing and the grits were out of this world.The service is fast and friendly and the coffee stays pouring.If this isnt 5 stars than i dont know what is.

Not everyone cares for diner food, but I don't hesitate to stop into a local diner when I'm looking for food in an unfamiliar locale. Stumbled upon this place for lunch and just loved it. Obvious care taken with food, unassuming decor and employees. We had corn chowder, grilled cheese & tomato, onion rings and pastrami sandwich. The breads are... More

The restaurant is plain and decor is strange, but the people are friendly and the food is average, great for breakfast!
