Seriously. Come here with my family at least twice a month. Haven't found a place that compares. The homeade toast and cinnamon rolls are a local favorite! Friendly staff. Hometown atmosphere.

My wife and I stopped in at Darlene's around 7 on a Saturday morning and found a comfortable table. Our waitress was with us right away.

We first ordered the large fresh made cinnamon roll. It was amazing. My wife and I both ordered eggs, sausage and the best homemade rye I have ever tasted.
