Donna's Cafe is just the kind of place my husband and I hope to find when on the road. As soon as we saw the dozen or so cars parked out front at 8 a.m., we knew we should stop for breakfast.

This is a cozy little diner that you will fall in love with. The breakfasts are great! Certain times of the year they have fish dinners. Otherwise they are only open for breakfast and lunch. The owners Don & Donna will make you feel at home!
