Truly unique breakfast spot. No frills, no nonsense, family owned. Looked like Pop cooking with Mom and daughter serving. Busy. Small. Counter seat most fun to watch the action.

Unlike so many breakfast joints, this is all done to order from scratch. No opening of the frozen hash browns. Potatoes are grated fresh. No cooking of 10# of bacon before opening...nope, Pop does it to order. Portions are generous. Don't be in a hurry.

Simple, good hearty breakfast with no frills.

This place wont win any prizes for decor with its back to basics interior, we stopped by due to the fact that we were staying across the street and the place had good reviews on TA. We had pancakes and waffles - worth a visit for good food on a budget. Stay away if you like plush fixtures & fittings.

The food was super cheap and very yummy. Must go for travelers on a budget! Only bummer is that it was cash only which wasn't a big deal because there is an atm across the street.

Nothing fancy, but a good breakfast that is reasonable.
