We had a great breakfast here. It was great to see all the locals come in and make it feel so friendly. We would definitely recommend this place for a good, filling breakfast.

Stopped in to get a coffee and a break from shopping. It had a great staff and served a good cup of coffee. With the closure of the Golden Hen, this will be our new place to go.

The turkey club was huge! Some of our group had breakfast and reported an excellent omelet, great breakfast with a huge slice of ham! Prices were very reasonable. Service was very good considering the place was packed the entire time we were there.

Small family dinner with great breakfast. Food was good and didn't cost an arm and a leg. Try the ham!
