Loved our family breakfast at the Hatchery. Adults and kids alike felt treated to a special meal in a small town family type place. Warm ambiance. Lovely drinks. Great food. Highly recommend.

Staff very friendly & helpful food was very good. When we were getting ready to leave the waitress came over asked if we wanted coffee to go, I thought that was very thoughtful. Eggs & hash was very good
