We were told this was an old-fashioned restaurant and that was correct. We ate two meals there. Dinner with delicious pork chops and apples! Breakfast the next morning was just average. While we were there they had a lot of people coming into the bakery....More

I have rated this restaurant for dinner before, but this is my first breakfast review, a Sunday morning. It started out with a carafe of coffee, like Howard Johnson's used to. This is a plus, but the coffee was weak I'm afraid. It was made...More
