Neat place with a dinner feel. Waitress was friendly and service was quick. My turkey melt without the bread was good, the flavor from the grilled turkey with the bacon was a great taste. The menu had a wide selection, with reasonable prices.

Great place for breakfast, they offer several omelets with great combinations, Benedict’s, many combination dishes and just a general assortment, sometimes for everyone. There is also a gluten free menu. Service is friendly and fast.
