Breakfast was delicious, served hot and truly cooked to order. Servings are very generous in portion. Traditional breakfasts are served as well as specialty items. I cannot say enough but encourage you to visit. The restaurant is spotless and the service wonderful.

The breakfast at the Vault, so named because you can eat in the old bank vault, is unique and tasty. Whatever you try, you will have plenty and at a reasonable price.
