This place has been hit and miss for me. I have had really good food and just so so food. Breakfast is usually good. I am a bit turned off by the " State of Jefferson " banner. Don't want politics with my food.

Great place for breakfast, Tina and John (owners) do a great job, serving larger than normal plates at a reasonable price.You will never leave hungry. I highly recommend the breakfast burrito, it is the bomb!

We shared a steak and eggs breakfast with home fries and pancakes... more than enough for 2 "big eaters." Coffee was strong, full flavored and fresh... not for wimps! Everything was fresh and perfectly prepared, good friendly service. Congenial attentive owners keeping a close eye...More
