You can get nearly anything you might want here and breakfast all day. They are now serving a wonderful Sunday brunch as well as an outdoor eating area as well as the inside seating. Ask for Misty she is tops!

Nice small town cafe. Service is prompt and friendly. Service was quick, food was good and well portioned, but slightly on the pricy side. Quiet atmosphere.
