We had breakfast, which was simple but good! Pictures, artwork, and signed photos on the walls from the cast of Andy of Mayberry. We would eat there again.

Stopped at Barney's Cafe for breakfast. How can you miss? It is breakfast. And with a name like Barney's, it would seem down home. Probably the worst breakfast we've had. The eggs were good. Can't mess up eggs. The potato were like french fries that...More
