Very popular, busy place that is a favorite with locals. Very good pancakes, oatmeal, and breakfast specials. Come early on the weekends or you'll be waiting in line!

We were here this morning for breakfast with family members and the food was great home style cooking. Portions are large and the food was fresh. The service was fast and friendly. Not a fancy restaurant but definitely one worth repeating.

Great food, great people, good value. Get there before the crowds or you will have to wait. They only serve breakfast and lunch. I have there several times over the past 10 years and you won't be disappointed.
