Not a fancy place, just good food at great prices. Daily specials make for easy picks for breakfast or lunch, Helpful, friendly staff that seem to know all the patrons by name! They really care about their customers.

I eat here a couple times in November. I can always count of fast and friendly service and good food. Keep an eye out for the specials :)

This is a fine place for a breakfast of sinful chocolate chip pancakes or any of the usual staples. The waitstaff are friendly and efficient, and the chefs (really short order cooks) have mastered the art of getting eggs prepared as requested as well as...More

The restaurant was VERY close to my motel. It's in a small building and has a "Mom and Pop" vibe. It was quite busy at 11a.m. on a Sunday morning but the server came to my table quickly, took my request for hot water(for my...More

Good selection of tasty food, friendly service and at reasonable prices. We visit the area twice a year and always stop for breakfast. We frequently have a few small children with us and the waitstaff is friendly and understanding.
