Dined here 7/14/2018 based on high TripAdvisor ratings. Had simple breakfast (eggs, toast, sausage & home fries) $9 add another $2.95 for coffee. Home-fries seemed to be from a bag and portion was small. Nice little neighborhood cafe especially if you like firefighter themed decor....More

Such a quaint family owned place with delicious breakfast! It was fun sitting at the bar top so we could watch them cook and have conversation. Three men cooking that interacted so smoothly and quickly. Amazed at their collaboraty! Delicious inexpensive breakfast you must try.

I like the atmosphere, the music and the service was friendly and attentive. The guy who seated us (Barry, perhaps?) was a little gruff, but it wasn't a big deal. My reason for the low rating was that each of us, after paying $10-12 each...More
