Small café with the feel of family and homecooking. Few tables outside and cozy inside with counter service too. Good old fashion food and very reasonable prices along with decent pricing. It's casual, pet friendly outside, great for anyone...single or not

Grabbed lunch here while visiting the area. The food and service were very good overall, and the prices were decent. They also offer off-street parking. I would recommend this place for good service and decent basic food with no frills.
