We ate here twice because the food was great, chicken fried steak, biscuits and gravey, and the crab benedict was wonderful, and the service was great, happy hostess and servers with a smile. Great way to start the day.

This place is such a quaint retreat for breakfast, sitting at small booths in an old rail car. The food is delicious, both times ordering the breakfast special (corned beef hash). The only situation is that it only has 6 tables, so if you are...More

After the recommendation we received we were curios. We came on a morning for breakfast and found that one of the train cars is used as a small restaurant with a limited selection & very limited tables to seat. Since it was raining and we...More
