Very inexpensive and the food was good. We had supper and breakfast at the diner. There were about 14 farmers eating breakfast at the diner. Listening to their yarns was our entertainment while having a great breakfast.

Nice's is another family owned and operated restaurant in our town. The food is home cooked. Nothing fancy. We have never had a bad meal there. Breakfast is served anytime. Service is always great.
