This is a very comfortable, friendly diner. Staff was friendly and the food was brought quickly. We stopped in for breakfast and it was very good. Best bacon I've ever tasted! Restaurant has a lot of historical charm.

This little restaurant was first class. The food was good and filling. The service was friendly and excellent. Someone with an attitude may have more problems, I don't know, but we were treated as old friends.

We stopped there for breakfast. My husband ordered the biscuits and gravy and really enjoyed it. I ordered eggs. Mine was OK but nothing special. The history behind the cafe is really nice. Prices are fair.
