picture a denny's type of place but with better food - sure its not super epicurian delights but good comfort food AND PLENTY OF IT!!!

it seems most things here are supersized (not that I am complaining) such as a chicken fried steak that is as big if not bigger than the plate, and the huge burgers (there was a saying somewhere to never eat anything bigger than your head - well then you may just starve at this place)

of course they have smaller portions available and great baked items (the warm berry cobbler with 'nilla ice cream mmmm)

It has a great staff, good food and nice atmosphere. Great for small gathering and families. It is your typical cafe that has quality you can depend on. They do not short change you on food.

It is our favorite breakfast chain, and this location was as good as the others ones we have been to.
