“A special little restaurant”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

Great service and down-home food at a laid-back restaurant - until it's time to decorate for the holidays. Then it's no hold barred! Although October and December are the best times to visit for the every-inch-covered decorations, good food is always in season here. Plain and simple, but yummy and filling.

“Small Cafe”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

The food is just average. I haven't been wowed by the food and I have eaten there several times. There is an outdoor patio. Service is good. They decorate for Halloween and Christmas and it is worth a trip there just to see this! They do an excellent job on decorations. For Halloween the servers dress in costume also. Bring the kids. Also available for party bookings. They are not open for dinner.

“Outstanding breakfast”
Reviewed December 13, 2011

Just a flat out great breakfast...eggs benedict with smothered home fries and country biscuits and gravey for my guest. Everything was cooked to perfection and was full of flavor. Check it out.

“Very different - very generic food”
Reviewed December 10, 2011

The restaurant was decorated over-the-top for Christmas & a few of the servers were dressed as elves. Lot's to look at for sure. Our server was nice, however, listening to every piece of her jewelry collection was not so much fun. Coffee stale & old - after I asked for a fresh cup I was told she knew it's been sitting a while. Food was somewhat greasy & definitely overpriced ($12.50 2 eggs, toast, bacon & coffee) for a small local restaurant with many other choices close by. Very unlikely to visit again - at any time of the day.
