We had a fantastic breakfast at this adorable cafe. Everything was excellent. Over easy eggs actually cooked over easy, delicious waffle, crispy and flavorful bacon. The owners and staff are exceptionally friendly. Wonderful experience!

Upon arrival we were promptly seated. I had chicken fried steak and the other member in my party had meatloaf. The meat was tender and tasty. The vegetables were wonderful. The service was excellent.
