Small town, local cafe where all the local people go for a good, basic breakfast. No frills breakfast: eggs, bacon, home fries and toast done right. Good coffee. Small with counter seating. Very reasonable price.

Everything is made fresh. Portions are massive. You get fresh baked bread and soup with anything you order. The 2 servers are the best!

We headed off the TransCanada Highway to find this place, based on previous reviews. We were thrilled to find it frequented by more "regulars" than tourists. This is an authentic diner! The service was amazing, and the food was tasty and generous. We chose the rye bread with our breakfast, and wished we could have taken home a loaf! delicious!
