“friendly, local, unfancy diner”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

This was next door to my motel and they offered 10% off for guests. I ended up eating there 3 times because it was so convenient, everybody is very friendly, and the food is decent.

Just based on food, i would rate it at most 3, but the convenience and people there make it a 4.

I had the gator bites. Nothing special.
I also went for breakfast, had the steak and eggs. The steak is a cheap cut, but it's steak.
3rd meal I had a more basic eggs/grits breakfast which was good.

“Worst cafe ever”
Reviewed November 24, 2013 via mobile

We stayed at the hotel near this cafe and as it was so close decided to give it a try. We were the only customers there and I can understand why. The food we had was terrible. The worst meal we've had in the states Also the worst coffee and service. Would definitely not go there again

Wow, sure wish you would have let your server know or ask for myself! We do strive to please! I am sure we have the best coffee in town! Great food and service:). For future knowledge, you should always let someone know when things are not right!

“Great place to eat!”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

We were staying nearby and decided to walk there for breakfast before going home. Great selection of breakfast foods on menu. Waitress could have been more friendly but the cashier was very pleasant and friendly. Breakfast was under $10.00. Located on main road so it is convenient. Nice place with great food and reasonable prices.

“JUST feel at home....”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

Easy going...coffee and juice in your table in seconds... Them one of the ladies (Owner?) comes to your table and presents 6 or more breakfast menus including steak and eggs, pancakes, waffles and in less than five minutes you have a delicious breakfast in fron of you for less than $10. It opens at 06:00 and it is the place at this time in the morning. It also serves lunch and dinner but we did not stay long enough. Congratulations for a job well done.
