My husband and I really liked this place. It is bright and cheerfully decorated and the waitstaff are friendly and efficient. My favorite besides the breakfast is the fried grouper.

Drove around looking for this place. It's not on Cotter St. But when I found it, the service was very friendly and the special was a ham steak and 2 eggs. It was delicious.
