There were 7 of us. Breakfast was 80 dollars. Plus tip. Eggs, gravy, toast, or biscuit. Bacon pancakes, coffee that's about it. Prices on TripAdvisor were out of date.

This was a very good breakfast out on the deck. We really enjoyed the food. However, be aware that the tables and chairs really leave a lot to be desired. The one owner seemed kind of grumpy too but the other owner was OK.

Definitely pet friendly on the patio, our dog was served scrambled eggs and water. My husband had the ham omelet and I had the veggie omelet, both were good. The service was fast and very friendly.
