Been driving past this place for years. Neighbor invited us to go for breakfast. Amazing food. Out of the way location. There is a reason this place has been voted "Best Kept Secret" by the local paper and their "Best of" contest!

We were very impressed with the overall look of this retro eating establishment. The food, however, didn't seem to live up to the appearance of the place. I ordered the chicken satay sticks and they were rather ordinary. Three strips of chicken arranged on a wimpy looking "bed" of lettuce with some dry looking rice noodles arranged for decoration.

Big mistake. Sorry. They missed the boat. I had eggs Benedict and husband had the heuvos Rancheros. Both were ice... More

I really wanted to like this place - there are so few good dining options this side of town. Torn between the Grilled Tempeh Melt and Fungi Eggs. Poor choice - the sandwich was not particularly good - dry and flavorless. A thick slab of unmarinated tempeh is just not appetizing. Avocado doesn't have much flavor either, and with no... More

The name suits it perfectly as it is not packed with tourists and the food fills your belly and is just so good!!! Go, enjoy being part of the... More

We live close to the Local Joint and have eaten there often. I am sorry to report that something has really changed. It has gone from great to sort of OK. What is most disappointing is the inconsistencies now happening. Just the other day we had the romaine salad which used to be a favorite of ours. We always order... More

A variety of omelets, other breakfast choices, with an option of toast or really good grits. Lunch choices span sandwiches, burgers and more. Nothing fancy, but well done and tasty. Friendly service in a diner-like atmosphere.

We came here the second day of our four day stay and loved the breakfast so much we came back two more times! Decent coffee but excellent eggs, omelets, home fries, and amazing blueberry and banana pancakes!! Everything looked so good! I'll return on another trip to the area to sample the challah French toast, oatmeal, huevos rancheros, breakfast scramble... More
