This is a fun café with a enthusiastic staff with good service. The menu is diverse with everything from hamburgers, Mexican dishes, Asian, dishes, homes style dishes like meatloaf and very good milk shakes. It is worth a visit if you are in the area.

I had one of the specials and it was awesome. The steak was cooked just right! The wait staff was friendly and so was the cook. The prices weren't bad either.

Ordered fish tacos, asked to please only use flour tortillas, since they use 2 tortillas per taco, they only had flour on the outside and corn tortilla inside, but they were dry, not enuf sauce on it. The meat sauce for the wraps looked nasty...More
