This is a gem. Get here early on a weekend morning because there will be lines otherwise -- for the best of reasons. The food is great, the waitstaff are pleasant and helpful (Laura is The Best), and the prices are reasonable.

So many choices it was hard to decide what to have! The food was fresh, nicely presented, tasty, and delicious. A hot pot of great coffee on the table and great service.

On vacation in the area, we stopped in for the most important meal of the day. Several of us were unaware this is a franchised business, but the local owners made it special. A robust menu with many of the classics and some nice "healthy"...More
