This tiny place is fantastic! Try the breakfast sandwiches. So good! They have waitress service, or you can get your food to go.

It's small but it is worth the wait. The women who own it are so nice and make you feel like family. Have been going every August for years! We never had to wait too long. Everything is so fresh.
