Went on Sunday and the turkey and dressing with 2 sides and a biscuit as big as a cat's head was very good with large portions. Came with choice of dessert chocolate cake or apple cobbler and both were good. Could not eat all of it. $8.99 without a drink, $1.79 additional. Tea is too sweet for my taste but... More

Enjoyed a great breakfast here this morning. Two eggs, two slices of very good ham, a huge portion of hash brown potatoes w/onions, toast and coffee was filling to say the least. Service was fast and friendly. Colorful decor with local historic items. Low prices. Look forward to a return visit.

My husband and myself and son and his family went here for breakfast. BIG MISTAKE!!! As we were waiting for our order a man was paying his bill. I heard him tell the girl that he never did get the eggs he ordered. About that time someone came out with a plate and set it on the table he had... More

The Chicken and Dumplings were some of the best I've ever had. The waitress was attentive and friendly. My friend and I both chose a double serving of fried... More

I love local joints and this one was a treat. We arrived about 10a Sunday expecting a wait but were seated right away. They even had outdoor seating. It was a cute country place. The service was very accommodating, and the portions were huge. The biscuits and gravy, pancakes, and fries were good. Great coffee too with plenty of refills.... More

The restaurant is cute and clean. The staff is friendly and helpful. The food arrived in a timely manner and was very good. I had the BLT Club which is as expected but with the treat of two over hard eggs. Very good and filling. The fried okra was good, but nothing special. The tea tasted fresh. A nice lunch... More

We decided to eat breakfast here on Sunday morning. The place was clean, waitress was super friendly and the place was about 1/3 full of customers. We placed our order and waited......and waited.... 45 minutes later we got our food. Eggs ordered over medium were over easy at best, sausage gravy was thin like water with no taste, potatoes had...
