Stopped here after waiting an hour and then left another cafe cause the service was slowwwwww. I would recommend this place. Friendly staff, fast service, only took about 20 minutes to get our food and it was delicious!

Most reviews here are for the diner/cafe (which is very good), but this place is also a motel of sorts: there are several cabins on location and they are way better than I expected. My cabin had a wall-to-wall carpet (clean!), there was a large...More

The café was recommended to us by the receptionist at the hotel we were staying and we were not disappointed. We had to rush a little as she told us that they stop serving at around 8pm. We arrived at 7:50pm and were received warmly...More
