Very traditional food, well prepared and presented. It was a favorite comfort food stop for us. My mother loved it. Seriously, it is a great place with good food and is just off the ocean. So, after dinner, it is an easy walk by the ocean to work off your dinner. Full meals with all of the traditional options.

The locals will tell you this is the best place in town. Tiny place dishing out great breakfast food - home-baked muffins, pancakes (huge), french toast, etc. A great way to have a yummy meal and get some local flavor. In the downtown highlands strip.

This eatery has their act together. The muffins are out of this world. The prices are very low for what all you get! The atmosphere is small town and the patrons are very friendly.
