Lots of local character and plenty of menu choices. Breakfast selections looked good. We shared a french dip sandwich which was only fair. But the fries were great. Side order of their house special mac and cheese was really good.

Who knew you could make gazpacho with watermelon? Easy to be at this place, good music, service, and food. Generous folks. Busy for breakfast but worth it. Great coffee and Quesadilla. Happy campers.
