The breakfast at the Vault, so named because you can eat in the old bank vault, is unique and tasty. Whatever you try, you will have plenty and at a reasonable price.

This funky little cafe is located on a corner of the town square. Blink and you'll miss the sign. You can't tell if it's open until you look close. I think it's open for breakfast and lunch only. We found it just by driving off...More

Service is always good, prices are great. The cobb salad is really good and filling. The vegetable soup and grilled cheese is also really good. Though, the breakfast platters tend to be too greasy. Overall a great inexpensive place for a quick bite.
