Everything is perfect about this place. All the food is home made from the muffins to soups. Staff are friendly. They have hash browns for breakfast! I haven't found anywhere else in the area that have them.

Homemade raisin bread (multi-grain, and others), a large variety of omelettes, daily specials, and small town atmosphere. Servers greater customers by name. It's a hidden jewel!
