Great food, friendly efficient staff and a chance to mingle and speak with locals or visitors alike. Old school countertop seating along with tables. Awesome breakfast. I recommend the country fried steak!

Horrible breakfast. The pancake taste was so not a pancake. It may have been bisquick but worse. Omelette wasn't even made as such. Absolutely no taste. The waiter was very rude. Will never go back. Pass

Small restaurant in the heart of downtown. We stopped here for breakfast and were served promptly. Menu is limited to basic items and the prices are very reasonable. Nothing fancy, but the affordable prices is what brings the locals back.

Bloody Mary with a decent amount of Fixin's, good cranberry mimosa but might go with orange next time. Food was good, quickly served by very friendly servers!
