We had one of the tastiest, most filling breakfasts ever at this cafe. The huevos rancheros were delicious, service was awesome and super quick.

I had the chicken fried steak and my husband had the chile, cheese omelet, we shared our plates because they were so good! Good old fashioned breakfast food, go with a healthy appetite! You will not be disappointed! Our waitress was a sweetheart too!

Wonderful breakfast in small home cooked place. I got the country fried steak with the Irish potatos and my wife had the machaca. One of the best I've ever had. The place isn't fancy or even nice but if your looking for the best food...More
