My husband and I both had omelettes with hash browns and sour dough toast. So good! My husband ended with their in-house made coconut cream pie. He loved it. Friendly place. Good service.

That's all. Portions were large. Ordered a side, never got it but it was on our bill. An extra drink was also added. The couple next to is had problems with their bill, too.

This place was recommended to us by a shop keeper. Locals choose it too and I'm not surprised at all. Quality food, great service, good coffee and well priced. And did I mention the pancakes were to die for?!

All four of our meals were delicious and were very hearty servings. This is a must for breakfast and be sure to come hungry
