The breakfast menu is amazing. Everything from eggs Benedict to biscuits and gravy. Their biscuits are about 6" across, a meal in itself, and always fresh baked. The staff is always friendly and willing to make adjustments for personal preferences.

Awesome breakfast, beautiful presentation delicious food. Homemade muffins or biscuits are an option instead of toast. Fresh tomatoes were a great side option instead of home fries but they were great too!
