We stopped in for breakfast and were not disappointed. Generous omelets and huge homemade biscuits. We noticed several daily specials listed as well as dinner specials. Several classics such as Liver and Onions and Corned Beef and Cabbage. A selection of steaks were also offered....More

One of our favorite breakfast spots to visit, before we head out on an out of town journey. Fast service, decent food, cordial staff,and reasonable prices. Convenient on/off access to major 405 Freeway.

A refreshing change from chain restaurants this local cafe offers a wide range of home cooked meals at very reasonable prices.

This place has a good breakfast with decent proportions. (better than a Denneys) Stick to breakfast. We had a gift certificate and so we visited for dinner. Sadly, the dinner meal just wasn't anything worth returning for.
