The food is great, but it only takes cash. Food is at a good price. Around $7 per item. The service was good, even tho they forgot things a few times, but they were busy. Location is kind of sketchy though.

Came to Alexandria with my fiancé for a funeral and found this gem. Great and fast service and food. They serve breakfast until they close at 2pm and only accept cash at this time.

Morning Breakfast is the crowds favorite. Maybe a bit noisy with a full house but not so you cannot carry forth your own visiting. The food is terrific and the coffee never ends, as the waitress(s) will always refill the cup.

This little family style cafe is a hidden gem! We were greeted by a friendly server and everything you could ask for on the menu.. omelets, steak and eggs and the kids favorites.. chocolate chip pancakes! Huge portions, delivered quickly (great service!) and low prices...More

This small café serves good breakfast and lunch. Service is prompt and prices are reasonable. The dining area is small and open, so it can be noisy.

Best breakfast in Alexandria. Excellent portions and great taste! Service is great. Might be hard to find a seat right away because it is busy. Definitely recommend

Quick eat but good home cooked breakfast. A smaller location so seating is a little limited but worth a stop and try the food!! Big menu, lots of choices

This place is a family favorite on Saturday or Sunday. It's a classic small town diner. Their breakfasts are awesome. My favorite are their egg dishes. They are awesome. Service is always great and quick and prices are low. Enjoy!

I think breakfast is always available but check the hours, I think they close at 2pm, then open back up for dinner.
