This is an outstanding place to stop for breakfast. I had a simple oatmeal, but it was delicious. It was King Arthur oatmeal from Vermont. The service was very efficient and there is plenty of free parking.

This restaurant is very cute and clean. Bacon and eggs and muffins were great. Unfortunately, the pancakes were heavy and pork sausages were hardly cooked. I would return but not for pancake breakfast.

This would be best served by doing a search under hotels, however Google says TripAdvisor can help you there too. But do check this place out if you go.
