Loved the atmosphere in Vic's. It's a genuine old diner that we stopped by to have breakfast. Full of local, so for English tourists like us it was a treat! Fab American breakfast and enough coffee to drown me

A standard all American family run eatery with good food and excellent service. Friendly staff who all speak English and where locals congregate. Right next to the beautiful town square and all the shops.
