Lived in the area nearly my entire life and finally ate here no long ago. Small, friendly place with a very good breakfast. Everyone in the place seemed to be having a nice time. Server very friendly. Will be back again.

Small restaurant, seems quite popular with locals. Seated quickly at 1:30pm on a Sunday. Delicious pasty with gravy. They split it up for us. Teen had special pancakes with white chocolate chips and M&Ms. Would eat here again.
