Went for lunch with my wife, found the menu full of your basis items (Sandwiches, burgers etc). I ordered a corned beef sandwich and my wife ordered a burger. Both were good but the sandwich could have used a little more corned beef as there were only 2 small layers on the sandwich, I was expecting a loaded sandwich much... More

Couldn't get in to this place on Sunday for the crowds. Came back on Monday morning and had a great experience. Excellent menu with some interesting dishes. Local, authentic and inexpensive - can't ask for more than that! Serving staff were friendly, responsive and efficient. We had a couple of different kinds of pancakes, eggs and sausage. All cooked to... More

This is an old fashioned, home cooking style restaurant which provides continuous coffee...quickly. On Sunday's after church there is a line up and it's clearly due to the downright delicious food served quickly and cheerfully. If you want waffles with whipped cream and fruit...it's here. Our favourite is the pancake, egg and sausage plate. Eggs arrive just as you specify... More

Have eaten there a few times. Good food but get a antiseptic feel there. Always busy, for some reason don't feel comfortable there.

I have eaten there a few times, the food is OK. If you love sweets for breakfast they will have that. The atmosphere is that of a typical breakfast place. Lots of regulars come.

I've driven by this cute little place for years and finally had a chance to stop for breakfast. The place is clean, bright, spacious and inviting. I had a standard American breafast - bacon, eggs, hash browns and toast. The service was friendly and quick and the food was great. I will definitely come back.

This cafe has mostly breakfast items, including "crepe roll-ups", and some lunch items as well. My dad and I had heard the crepes here were good, so we figured we'd give it a shot. I was hoping for some savory crepes, but the waitress proclaimed she didn't know what savory meant, so we explained and she said they only serve... More

Great example of an old style American small town dinner. Servers are experienced and friendly. Kitchen is visible as you walk in.
