Small, local cafe/diner serving a good assortment of breakfast and lunch options. Portions are huge and delicious. Coffee is good and pleantifull. Cash only with limited seating. Not to be missed!

Nice place to eat. Great breakfasts. Pancakes bigger than your head! Only downside is it can be very busy on weekends.
