Staff is friendly and always refilling your coffee cup. Food is great, the hangover is my favourite, scrambled eggs, fried potatoes, onions and sausage with sour dough toast, yum! This is our second time of eating here and won't be our last.

We might have been the last customers of the day (the place closes up after lunch) and that's what the cook was singing over and over. Strangely, it was more funny, or charming than annoying. We were somewhat late in arriving in town and after...More

This little restaurant is a throwback to the days of old, when the town was small and sleepy. We were lucky enough to get a table for breakfast as soon as we walked in the door. The room felt warm and seemed to be full...More

Great local breakfast place, looked to be busy with a lot of regular customers. We really enjoyed our breakfasts but overall they were smaller and about $10-$12. Don't expect the overstuffed plate of breakfast food with potatoes. The waitress was excellent.
