We were visiting from Seattle and came here for breakfast. Had eggs, hash browns, turkey bacon, and toast. Compared to IHOP, this was real food and NOT pre-prepared, tasteless, GMO junk. Next time I am in town, I will come back here.

This little place has your basic breakfast options, however the food is better than average! The scrambled eggs were perfect for my liking and the pancakes were fluffy! Will definitely add this to my list of places to stop at when we are visiting again.

A great "Mom & Pop" café. Small but friendly place to have breakfast. Busy with local folks. Service was fast and friendly. Good prices for good food and large portions. Small parking lot.

The food is WONDERFUL but we will not be back the next time we return. A 45 minute wait for food would be fine with some communication or an offer to get the children's food out first; neither happened. I appreciate that this is a...More

Went around 930 on a Sunday morning and had a short wait for table of 3. It is seat yourself seating but people waiting ahead of us offered up tables they couldn't fit in. Great service and food was good. Worth the wait.
