Love Firefly Cafe in the beginning! Original owner was fun, pleasant to visit with and the food was very good. New owners were just not the same and the prices seemed to increase and the food quality did not. Sad it had close.

We enjoyed dinner one night and a great breakfast the next day. We had hamburger steaks with grilled onions and a great salad for dinner. Breakfast was granola coated french toast and cheese omelets with great country ham and homemade biscuits!!
