It's a little understated on the outside, but walk inside and you'll find a woodsy country dining room. The staff is friendly and service is good. My breakfast (called the "Pony" on the menu) included one egg, sizable sausage patty, home fries, and a biscuit...More

This place was highly recommended for breakfast by some locals we know. While we certainly enjoyed our food and the service was fine, it was not in the top tier of breakfast places we have been to in other cities.

I love eating breakfast at this place, tastes just like mama's home cooking. The portions are large, great biscuits and gravy, huge pancakes, crispy bacon, eggs cooked to perfection..you get the point. Enjoy!
