We try to stop in here for breakfast whenever we go into town. The servers are really nice and quick. Prices are good too. I LOVE the biscuits and gravy! It's cash only. So come prepared.

Delicious food and pies. Good size portions. If there on their Chicken Pot Pie night (Fri or Sat???) it is a must have.
