Just a three block walk from all the pricey casino restaurants in Peppermill, this is the place for a hearty breakfast. THe bacon is thick and tasty, the scrambles are excellent and the red potatoes are a great accompaniment to the breakfast platters. (Better than...More

Easy place to find and lots of choices. They have all the calorie counts so guide yourself accordingly. Good strong java. And make sure you try the home fries. Good spot to stop before a long drive out to the west

The food here is really good and the portions are big. I knew this going in, so I ordered from the “little less” menu. The club sandwich was still big, but very delicious. The server was very helpful and friendly. This is worth the stop.

Was traveling with a group and wanted some good moderately priced food. It hit the spot. Meals were good and portions too. Everyone was too full for desert but those looked good. Burgers and fried chicken were very good.
