A friend took me here and raved about the chicken fried chicken, Monterey potato pancake and cinnamon roll. All were fantastic and did not disappoint. All staff were extremely courteous and friendly. A MUST TRY if in normal heights.

Had 7 of us for breakfast and the food was plentiful, tasty, reasonable and quick. Waitresses from the old school and they were a charm. Lots of people for breakfast, but they took care of us like we were the only ones there. Very large menu, but the homemade biscuit was the crown jewel. Nest SD trip, we are going... More

My wife has wanted to go here for years but we don't live nearby so never made it. Today was the exception and I'm so happy we came. The food is amazing and that is an understatement. French toast, eggs, bacon and the CINNAMON ROLLS! The service was great and the food was prepared firmly quickly. I hear there are... More

Regular specials on various days of the week include fantastic chile verde (Fri. & into weekends I think); Fri. morning superb sticky buns; and... More

This place serves up amazing breakfast dishes. The servings are generous and the price is fair. Don't miss out on the homemade biscuits with gravy. Only problem is no parking but if you find some is worth the wait.

Arrived early on Sunday morning breakfast around 8:30 am. A little too cool to eat out side but that is the place if the weather is accommodating. Lots of room inside, fast service with excellent food. Large selection of breakfast items to pick from. I had the Eggs Benedict. Wonderful meal.

Thank Emory B
