It ain't my mamas cooking, it's okay but that's about it, been there twice now for breakfast. Probably won't go back again, the service was great but the food is just average. $8.00 for gravy and biscuits should be damn good, not so much!

We left happy and full from a delicious late breakfast. One person had biscuits and gravy, one had the tofu stir fry, and I had the breakfast special sandwich. Yummmmms all around. Of course the biscuits and jam were WONDERFUL!
