The Cafe on the oval is a nice friendly place for breakfast and lunch. The food is very good many homemade specialties to choose from. It's no frills just a good ole home town diner/cafe.

Wonderful experience dining here!!, Parking easy to access around the oval or behind the building. Food is very fresh, not overwhelming portions, place is clean and nicely decorated. Fast and friendly waitstaff that don't hurry if you want another cup of coffee to linger longer!

My wife and I have visited this Resturant on three (3) occasions and have never been disappointed. The pancakes are very good as well as the other breakfast dishes. We will return again.

Love this place for a quick and hearty breakfast with my boyfriend. The plates are your usual breakfast fare but they always have yummy looking specials and some plates come with a cinnamon roll, yum.
