Nothing better than Blueberry Pancakes. They are huge! Deserts are great and you can't go wrong with the daily specials (unless it's liver...I never eat liver). I drive out of my way to stop here.

Home town atmosphere with home cooked menu. Good menu options for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Portion sizes are great for the hungry diner!

Old fashioned, dated and cramped make this place a perfect small town diner. Food is cheap but very good. Specials are always perfect comfort food.

Ate here a couple of times while we were in town for a family event. The food was was what you would expect in a small town cafe, nothing exceptional. You do get your money's worth as the portions are quite large. Staff is friendly and helpful.

We stopped here for breakfast. Service was fast and friendly, restaurant is clean with an older look to it. We ordered the corn beef hash and stuffed hash browns. Food came out quick and hot. Our eggs were overcooked, but the Corn beef hash was very good. The stuffed hashbrowns are something I'll never order again. The chunks of onion... More
