The Portlander scramble with cheddar, mushrooms, and bacon was delicious! I would definitely recommend these guys look at having at least one type of gluten-free bread available though. Almost everything on the menu appears to have gluten, so my options were very limited. Otherwise very...More

Tiny little place with great food. Had the half and half which was half a sandwich and one of their signature salads. Good choice but the star was the coffee cake of the day, be sure and save room.

A small venue, closes early and also takes a long vacation. I love that. Great food. Best is the Gravy and Biscuit. But everything is good. They also use the high quality meat.
