1.Testy? Like in easily aggrivated? 2. Or Tasty? Like in really delicious? I'm voting on number 2. We met friends here for breakfast. Had a wonderful table outside near the river. A great spring morning. It was beautiful. The food was delicious, and full of what was fresh in the area. I'd say this chef is inventive by looking at... More

Need a good basic breakfast, go here. Staff is great, easy to get too, and fast service (when there are more then 3 lady's) but don't mess the place.

Great place for that "weekend breakfast". Its small, it's easy to miss, and worth repeat visits. We live just down the street and really enjoy our weekend breakfast there along with afternoon lunches. Always fresh and always plenty of it...good food awaits. Try the Hash and Eggs for breakfast with a side of perfectly cooked bacon. Right off the highway... More

They have the best breakfast in town and in the towns surrounding Maple Valley. They are cash or check only so come prepared. This is a diner not a restaurant the portions are great the price is right and the service is no nonsense.

If you want a delicious breakfast at a quaint location, look no further. We took seats at the bar and watched three gals efficiently run the small grill area, serving up home cooked breakfasts. Got a great meal and entertainment :)

Love going here during the summer as there's a great deck with a river side of you. Food is very delicious and homemade i've been pleased with both the egg dishes and special sweet varieties of French toast, pancakes etc. Inside of the restaurant is cozy but cute. I only get four stars because they take cash only and it... More
