The patty melt was really good. Not fond of the regular frozen type fries from a unique cafe. The waitress was short and just seemed uninterested in customer service. Did enjoy the unique decor.

There were 7 of us. Breakfast was 80 dollars. Plus tip. Eggs, gravy, toast, or biscuit. Bacon pancakes, coffee that's about it. Prices on TripAdvisor were out of date.

We had breakfast there and it was top notch. Coffee was great to wake up to. Good portions for the money.

Went there for breakfast for the first time, and it was great. They cook to order, so you don't get your food so quick, but so worth it. It's a little small, not many tables, but great in the summer because you can sit outside as well. Awesome

We stopped for lunch after horseback riding. Our family had both breakfast and lunch meal. All were excellent! Papa's meatloaf was amazing!

We wound up here for breakfast, after waiting a loing time at another place. We were seated fairly promptly, but being a small place with only one waitress, it takes awhile to be waited on and to get your food here. We ordered plain ole country breakfast plates, but did ask for crispy bacon. When to food arrived, the bacon... More

This was a very good breakfast out on the deck. We really enjoyed the food. However, be aware that the tables and chairs really leave a lot to be desired. The one owner seemed kind of grumpy too but the other owner was OK.

Stopped for breakfast because of the menu on their "website" claimed they had a German breakfast. The menu we received was missing ALL the "German items" from said website. The Trip Advisor menu is the correct menu. Our buscuits tasted as if they had been frozen. Our food was served on plastic plates with tons of scratch marks on them.... More

Definitely pet friendly on the patio, our dog was served scrambled eggs and water. My husband had the ham omelet and I had the veggie omelet, both were good. The service was fast and very friendly.
