Lots of locals were there but our food was not quality. There was too much butter and the fish did not have any taste at all. The French onion soup tasted like Campbell's. Although it was recommended to us by our hotel, I would not go there again and would not recommend it to others.

We ate breakfast at this small town joint where the waitresses know their customers and the coffee cup is always kept full. The food was simple and fairly tasty, and probably healthier than some breakfast chains - not dripping in grease or gravy. Brand name jelly - Smuckers - made the boys happy.

Our goal was to get a quick bite without having to drive far or wait for a table, so that we could get right out to the battlefields. We arrived at 9:15AM on a weekday between Christmas and New Years and did not have to wait - but by 9:30 there was a line.

This place fit the bill, and the people watching was fun. One waitress seemed to be reading a customer the riot act, but later we decided she knew him and was joking!

You're spending a few days in a small town, historic site, which is not large enough to have many restaurants, now what? By avoiding the chains you are down to a short list. Then, as we always do, ask where the locals eat.

Surprise! We pull into this non-descript strip mall at 8 a.m. and there they are, the geezers are lined up for REAL breakfasts. This joint would be the poster-child for the AARP crowd. We knew we were in the right place.

Okay, there are no tablecloths, cotton napkins or saucers for the coffee cups but this is where they know how to deliver home cooking with hospitality, quality ingredients, home fries perfection, properly buttered whole wheat toast and an endless pot of tea that doesn't leak.

Cordon Bleu, non! But great value, service and local charm. We will take that any day.

Plus, when we left behind a cel phone, we got a call from our daughter in Oregon telling us to return to the cafe! Folks, that is service.

Bon appetit!

Don't be smug and arrogant, visit the local spots for the best experiences.

Definitely a family restaurant with small town flavor. Food was very good and service was quick and enjoyable. A little out of the "historic" area but worth the very short drive to eat here. Very good prices.
