We enjoy going here for breakfast, bacon is always done the way I like, crispy. Waitress also friendly and nice to talk to. One of these days I will be trying one of their many pies, they all look so good.

Very cute café, attentive wait staff, but just average breakfast. Pancakes lacked a little bit in flavor. Biscuits and gravy were good but again not outstanding.

All of our bakery is homemade. With that in mind please give us a 24 hour notice when ordering desserts. We have very unique and delicious daily breakfast and lunch specials. We would love to serve you.
