Had eggs, Canadian bacon, hash browns and toast. Service was ok, they were busy. Toast was slathered with margarine when it came (I prefer butter. Would not have applied to heavily).

We went to Cox's for breakfast. The food was very good and inexpensive. Lots of locals eat there, so that usually means it's a good choice and it was for our party of four.

They always have awesome food here. But I'm a little tired of tourists invading my area of solitude. But at lest I do t have to put up with them during the off season. This place has the good food. If you don't think it has good food then you are part of the problem

Went for our Saturday morning breakfast out. Food was good as was the service. My husband had pancakes and sausage. More food than he could eat. I had an omelet that I enjoyed as well.

Thank donlar
