This is an ok place for breakfast. It is popular with local workmen. The coffee is good and the eggs are fine. The service was also fine. I object to restaurants that serve powdered cream with coffee instead of the real thing and margarine instead of butter.

We have lived in the area for years and we never noticed this little hole in the wall. This place is a diamond in the rough. At first glance we were skeptical. When we walked in we were even more skeptical. However we were greeted with warm smiles and an offer of fresh hot coffee. The only portion of the... More

Don't expect a five star meal or service. The folks are nice and the food is decent. It is cooked to order but you may not always get it hot. The coffee is great and you can always strike up a conversation with a stranger if you want. The same folks have been gathering there for years. Breakfast is always... More

My family had an 11 person breakfast reunion here, many small restaurants cringe at servicing more than 6. We were welcomed and promptly seated. They weren't packed, and it felt like home. Our waitress was friendly, answered all our needs and even recommended the skillet to me when I just couldn't make up my mind. Boy it was awesome! I... More

Only go here if you want your food smothered in cigarette smell. It was so strong my wife and I had to leave after a few minutes. It is their choice on allowing it and my choice to never return.

I've eat here numerous times and as always, it's great. Country Ham, eggs and hashbrowns with onion and hot biscuits are my favorite for breatfast. Fried chicken livers and Chicken and dumplings are a must. If you like 60's music, Coca Cola memorabilia and black-n-white checkered tablecloths you will love there friendly Country atmosphere. Entertain the kids with dry erase... More
