Stopped by for breakfast and was treated by not only awesome food and service, but to outstanding music by the local artists. A true slice of Americana.

My wife and I stopped in for a morning coffee. The place looks very nice and appears to be popular with the locals. When first entering the café the person behind the counter did not acknowledge us even though there was no one at the counter. Then a local woman came in to get coffee and her order was taken...

Had breakfast their on Sunday with my family. The place has a great ambiance - brought back memories of my youth and growing up in BB. Our waitress was inexperienced but tried hard. She wasn't able to serve our food at the same time so 2 of us received our plates a full 5 minutes before the other 2 plates... More
