We stopped for a quick breakfast before heading back to the cities. The food was excellent, the price was right. It has a great small town feel to it. I would definitely stop back when in the area.

You won't find a better breakfast in town. The prices are great, the service is super and the food is wonderful. Get here early because it stays busy, and bring your appetite.

We were staying at Arrowwood Resort and decided to go off-site for breakfast and we were very pleased with this hometown cafe. The kids loved the hot chocolate and the pancakes. We would go back again when going through Alexandria again.
