Typical country breakfast fare. Everything is delicious and fair priced. Only negative is the coffee is a little weak for my tastes.

My wife and I had lunch here while shopping in the area earlier today. Bottom line: we felt that it was a very nice lunch option. My wife had a BLT and I had the redeye burger, an 8 ounce hamburger patty, complete with Friday...More
