Great for breakfast with good sized portions. Crowded on the weekends, especially morning after people get out of church. Best time to get there is before 9. They have also a bakery there, good bacon and a place to see your friends.

This is a wonderful stop for a homey breakfast, whether you want eggs, homebaked muffins (especially the cranberry ones), or the freshest fruit cup in town.

A great place with many 'regulars' from town. That says it all --when the locals eat there it must be good
