The absolute worst! Had a burger that was like a piece of wood, petrified. Ordered a salad that was not edible , wilted with a rotten tomato. Road kill would have been a better choice.

We enjoyed eating breakfast here. It is a quaint place and the service and food was great as well. Our hostess was kind and helpful and the meal came quickly. We didn't have to wait very long.
