This is a clean restaurant with friendly and efficient waitstaff. The decor is nothing special, and the menu is typical American breakfast fare, but the food was good and served quickly. A good choice for a quick, convenient meal to start the day.

Although upon entering, it appears to be more of a local hangout and sports bar, the dining area was reasonably quiet and the food and service good.
