My wife and I stopped here on our way to the Pima Air Museum. Nothing spectacular about this place, but it never pretends to be. But it was *very* comfortable and the food was very good. Very nice people! Everything a diner should be!

Stopped into the local cafe for breakfast today. The food was just average, nothing special. My french toast was thin, soggy, and basically tasteless. On the positive side, the service was good and the food arrived quickly. And the prices were reasonable. Why is the rhubarb pie a neon pink color? Is it to make it more appetizing? Well, it... More

Went here with a friend, we both liked it. I love GOOD biscuits and gravy and these were YUM. I got the small order, 2 biscuits and nice cup o gravy. Really good, enough for my smaller appetite these days. Friend got an omelette and salsa on the side which he said was good. Busy place, good service.

crowed, so I sat at the counter. The coffee kept coming and the service was terrific. Had pancakes and crisp bacon, the bacon was well done, just about edible. Seems like a terrific local spot, will stop here again, and order slightly crispy bacon!

Very friendly staff and great food. We went for breakfast on our way out of town and loved it. We would definitely be regulars if we lived here! The prices are very reasonable and the food is GREAT! Also try the cinnamon rolls they are amazing :)

Had breakfast for lunch while waiting for my truck to be serviced across the street. Food was very good, service was friendly and exceptional. Typical diner atmosphere but clean and well maintained. I wouldn't hesitate to return or recommend to others.
