A great restaurant at the end of Old Town. If you go on Sunday, try to get there before 10 as we noticed quite a line-up of people waiting to get in as we left. The food is great, and the service is very friendly.

Hi Rainy11 thank you for stopping in early Sunday morning. Good job beating the crowd! Early bird gets the worm, hopefully in your case a cinnamon roll, the mess, or something else yummy. Thank you again for coming in.

Somewhat disappointing. We hadn’t been here in years. Pancakes were too thick, not light and fluffy. Sausage was bland. Biscuit/gravy was a large portion. Apparently their biscuits are also large but I couldn’t see them well under the gravy. It appeared to be one huge...More
