Clark's is a typical American diner type restaurant that serves up a good breakfast at a good price. The interior is interesting, especially for car enthusiasts, and the service is friendly. Easy to find, right off the highway, with plenty of parking.

Clark's Cafe has a really friendly, old time country diner atmosphere. On Sunday mornings when we eat there, Mr. Clark himself is on premises, chatting with customers. Not just the regulars- anyone who wants a little conversation. He and his restaurant are very interesting, especially...More
