I eat here a couple times in November. I can always count of fast and friendly service and good food. Keep an eye out for the specials :)

Good selection of tasty food, friendly service and at reasonable prices. We visit the area twice a year and always stop for breakfast. We frequently have a few small children with us and the waitstaff is friendly and understanding.
