If you are not a local or want to pay $$$$ for poor food don't go here. Recently we were charged over $11 for an omlet, that was flat as a pancake. Our waitress did not return to our table to refill coffee or ask about our meal, spent her time (20mins) talking to another table. When we complained to the owner the response was "So? Don't eat here then." We won't...ever...again.

Wanted to try this place because it looked interesting from the outside. Inside is very well-decorated with circus memorablia, train memorablia and old china plates. Interesting.

Went there for breakfast and thought that the prices were high compared to what you got. The portions were a little skimpy for the prices charged. Compared to a quality place like Mimi's Cafe for breakfast, you did not get as much for about the same cost for breakfast. Have gone to too many other good breakfast places to rate this place Excellent or even Very Good.

Wife had the carmelized french toast which seemed more like it was deep-fried with a crust around it. She did not care for it. Was not too happy for what the price was $6.49 - with no bacon.

I had Breakfast sausage and eggs ($8.50)) which was nothing special and it seemed like they cut the sausage in half before cooking it (portion was small). For the money charged, two breakfasts, two coffees,and a side order of bacon ($2.49) - because wife's French toast did not come with any, the total cost was $23.48 before tip. Pretty pricey for what was delivered.

Wanted to try it after driving past it several times, now after eating there, will not be rushing back as it was okay food, okay coffee ($1.95), but the prices were for more of a premium place. Recommendation" Keep driving, better places ahead.

Food is good, service is great. While you are waiting for food, take a look around the restaurant. So much to see. Decor changes with holidays. A fun place to eat.
