3 eggs, bacon or (homemade) sausage, homemade italian toast, red potatoe homefries $5.95. The owner (Bruno) will be cooking right in front of you and thanking every patron that walks into and out of the door. Have cash ready (no credit cards) and be prepared for the place closing at 2:00 PM. Everything is just a little bit better than you would expect. HUGE lunch specials daily, italian favorites, homemade soups, and of course the home made bread which keeps coming.

OK..you want good food at a fair price? This is the place. No fancy dining here...no "ambiance"...just good, homemade food served up by the owners themselves. The place could use updating but it apparently is not a priority to the owners.
Not open for dinner...closes right after lunch and is only open M-F. Odd hours that seem to work for these folks. The owners are generally friendly but can be snooty too. If you can get past the arrogance, you'll be fine!!
