Stopped in for breakfast. Large bar small dinning area a classic feel. Food was fast and good. Menu is large and covers a good range. Service is spot on and friendly. Only negative. Parking is tight.

We were told we needed to stop in here for a very good breakfast and were not disappointed. It was - to me - an old country cafe with lots of "roosters" setting on shelves and hanging on the walls in pictures representing the "early...More
