We took our grandson to eat here and the service and the quality of the food was not what we expected. We might come again because they have an awesome selection of sweets.

Had Sunday morning breakfast here. They run an efficient operation. Waitress friendly. Food good. Left some on plate cause we just didn't have any room. Wife's omelette thoroughly filled with stuffing.
