This is a nice clean homey restaurant with a fantastic breakfast menu. Home cooked food at it's best. Cracker Barrel could take lessons from this place. Good food and excellent service with a lot of regulars so you know it's good. They keep coming back.

Great place for breakfast or lunch. Family owned. Home cooking without the cleanup. Staff is very friendly in a warm and comfy atmosphere. Half portions available for smaller appetites. The only place we eat breakfast outside of home.
