wholesome food with children's and seniors menus. Good selection of draft beers. It is very friendly, clean, but food is nothing special.

We came here with a party of eight and everyone had a wonderful breakfast. I had the meat omelette which was packed with sausage, bacon and ham. I also tried the pancakes which were very good. The hashbrowns also were very tasty.
