Old fashioned, dated and cramped make this place a perfect small town diner. Food is cheap but very good. Specials are always perfect comfort food.

Ate here a couple of times while we were in town for a family event. The food was was what you would expect in a small town cafe, nothing exceptional. You do get your money's worth as the portions are quite large. Staff is friendly and helpful.

We stopped here for breakfast. Service was fast and friendly, restaurant is clean with an older look to it. We ordered the corn beef hash and stuffed hash browns. Food came out quick and hot. Our eggs were overcooked, but the Corn beef hash was very good. The stuffed hashbrowns are something I'll never order again. The chunks of onion... More

Service was ok Food was ok. Took a while to get food and service. Was not a real friendly environment. Seemed like they were happy with thier regulars and didnt want more bussiness. Not a real clean place. Wont be going back again. Also limited parking.

A little hole in the wall place. I've been here twice. Food is not very good. Atmosphere is not great. I probably would not go back

Drove 50 miles to check out the town again, we'd earthen lunch here in the past so we're anxious to try breakfast. We were so glad we returned. Some of the best eggs Benedict I've gotten in ages, stuffed hash brown special was so good. Everything came out exactly as ordered, steaming hot & everyones food at the same time.... More
