Powell's is family owned and has a great breakfast & lunch menu. The staff (the owners) are friendly and quick to joke. Never had a bad meal; would recommend stopping in. P.S. closed Monday's

I've eaten here several times. Family owed; attentive waiter. They only have breakfast and lunch. Limited parking.
