A favorite local spot for a catch up with local friends over breakfast. They have a full breakfast menu, freshly prepared but the service team make keep us coming back.

The breakfast special is a real bargain and includes your beverage.

Biscuits and gravy, omelettes, pancakes and more.

However, don't let the name fool you, as its location is not Downtown but just a few minutes north in a small shopping area.

Worth the drive and not just for breakfast.

I love their Chicken Cordon Bleu and my wife loves their Lumberjack breakfast platter. They also have my favorite french fries in town!

We stopped about 9 on a bright, bone-chilling morning ... about 2 below. “Baby It’s Cold Outside” was playing. This is still a popular spot with locals, but is showing some wear; cracked seats in some booths and carpet could be cleaned/replaced. But good food and value brings people back. We were seated and served promptly. The Classic Breakfast includes 2 eggs, choice of meat, hash browns, toast, and coffee or juice for $6. The Half and Half fills the plate with half order of biscuits and gravy and hash browns; that and a cup of coffee was $5.50. It was all tasty and served hot and as ordered. We headed back into the cold with leftovers.

Classic diner with really good prices. I got two eggs, three slices of bacon, a pancake, and OJ for $6. Pretty good selection and friendly service.
