My family and I had chosen to have breakfast here as I had received a gift certificate from a client. It is a very small dining room with too many tables and chairs to make for a comfortable dining experience. They close at 1 pm and they lock the door so no one else can enter. In order to exit...

You need to get here early, this place gets swamped but the wait is totally worth it. Great prices and wonderful food & staff!! It's great for a date as well. If you're like me, going out to eat is a favorite past time. This place is one to stop at. Breakfast here is one of the best in town!

Great breakfast place, if they were bigger they would do even better. Tough parking and tight dining space.

They have the best fish dinners at a GREAT price. You have to get there early as they are open for breakfast and lunch only. Call ahead and it will be ready to take home when you get there.
