This is a wonderful restaurant! Excellent and plentiful breakfast. Food was all so well prepared that we each picked out a piece of pie to go also. The staff were all friendly and accommodating.

Great place for lunch on a travel day. Staff welcoming, menu quite varied with great home cooked flavors, portions flexible from generous to senior sized. I had a half brisket sandwich and cup of asperagus soup - perfect on all counts 😋
