This place is unique. There's a homey county charm infused with an artsy flare. The food selections are great, and where coffee- holics can get their fix. No vegan selections but vegetarians will not go hungry

Arrived around the time the kitchen was supposed to close but we received friendly service. The Duck Grilled Cheese was fantastic and so was the legendary Hangover Hashbrowns! Huge portions! We'll be back to work our way through their very extensive menu!
