We came for a weekday breakfast and were quickly seated. Both of us decided on the Texas French toast and we both emphasized to the waitress that we did NOT want butter on it. Told her twice and she said "okay." I got a cup of coffee, too. The food came fairly quickly, slathered in butter. After that it was... More

The restaurant was very small so we ended up chatting with the table across from us. Service was good and food was great. I had an omelette and it was huge. The locals eat here.

I returned a couple of decades later with my child for their Belgian-style waffles. Alas, it remains a memory since they switched to the faster, more rubbery American-style version. Still, a solid and quaint place to relive the past and grub affordably.

Old school diner charm in a rustic cabin. Service was friendly and you tell it was a local crowd. "The Usual" was great for comfort food and priced at $6. Coffee was subpar...way to watery for my taste, but overall I'd come back for the blueberry French toast.
