We were happy to find a restaurant that opened at 6:30 a.m. so we could start our day. No ambiance here, but it was clean, breakfast was good and staff was friendly.

One of my favorites among many of the old-school, off-the-interstate Mom & Pop diners. God, I LOVE stopping at places like this and then adding them to my "to do" list for when I next travel in that area. This is The Palm Cafe in...More
