Basic picnic table breakfast place with pretty good food. The place is loud and everything echos. Waitresses are fast, loud and friendly. A standout is the half order of sausage gravy over country fries. These fries are round quarter inch thick slices of potato fried beautifully golden and covered with a white gravy full of sausage pieces. Large quantity. My fried egg and the sausage patty were ok, but kind of dry. The biscuit that my wife offered from her plate was really good. It was crowded this visit and noisy.

Went in for biscuits and gravy and was very pleased. Very high amount of sausage in the gravy. Waitresses share duty. They all Come by to fill your coffee cup. Filled with locals in a very casual atmosphere. Rows of picnic tables and a large counter. Nothing fancy just good food at a fair price.

Ordered pancakes and bacon. Overpriced and not very good. I went there due to the reviews and neighbor telling me it was a great place. Maybe it was an off day. The waitress was loud and unpleasant.

This small little Breakfast/Lunch nook has some darn good food. I would say its something between a Dive and Diner, in a good way. This restaurant is clean, and the staff is very nice, and so is the owner. I had a Bacon Cheddar Cheese omelette, with potatoes, and rye toast. The omelette was very tasty, as were the potatoes. Not a bit greasy at all. Also had the Bisquits and Sausage Gravy, which were excellent. The owner says the Bisquits and Gravy are made fresh every morning, and it tastes like it. I drove from Venice to Punta Gorda which is about 25 miles to try this place, and I will definitey go back. Oh I forgot to mention that the prices are very reasonable.
