Great small town restaurant with excellent service and food! Service is friendly and fast. Food is made from scratch and delicious! Finish off with a caramel roll or pie. Worth the stop anytime!

Wow fast great service with outstanding food. This I would chalk up as a small town icon. The place was packed and service was so fast. We will be going back. It is worth getting off 94 to eat here

Cute little Cafe on main street. Greeted with smile! The locals were having their coffee. Warmed my heart they stay connected and took time to share stories with each other. We ordered and food came quick. Reasonable priced for Great home made breakfast! Clean!
