This is a great place for home style cooking. The menu included a wide variety and included breakfast served all day. The menu was definitely slanted toward home style comfort food. The food was very good as was the service.

I visited for breakfast. This restaurant is clean and cozy. I ordered Mediterranean omelet. It was very good. My husband ordered corned beef hash. He liked it. Hashbrowns are crunchy and tasty. I will visit this restaurant again.

This menu is wonderful and the service was great. Fast and respectful, stopped by when they should and stayed away when they should. Classy place with turkey sausage as an option for us that choose as out breakfast meat.
