My fishing guide brought me and my fishing buddy to this unassuming place. Pancakes covering one plate with another plate with what looks like a 1/3 lb. sausage patty was what I had. According to my guide, a good place to order ham & eggs...More

Alta had been making breakfast and lunch for local farmers and fishermen long before we showed up in the area. Portions are large, everything is fresh and Alta, herself, is a real treat. Space is limited and the place can get full pretty quickly around...More

Hardworking lady in a simple little town restaurant, everything is made there and then and served as part of one happy family. Coffee could be stronger but its served with love. Not fine dining, but the price is accordingly and if you want to meet...More
