We've eaten here a few times for breakfast and have always been satisfied with our meal. They have a good variety of choices on the breakfast menu. The omelets are great. Hash browns could be a little crispier. I agree with a previous review: go with the toast over the biscuit. Staff is always friendly. Service is quick.

Ok if you are in the area and want a new experience. Will come back and try the breakfasts.

Had the Western Burger with bacon, cheese, Bbq sauce, onion ring. Meat was thin, plenty of bacon, ring was crispy. Taste was pretty ok not special. Bbq sauce could have used a bigger kick and not just hotter but just better. Have had many sauces and this one was totally plain Jane vanilla. A really good sauce and little more meat and 3/4 the bacon (were four strips) would make this a five star burger!

3 out of the 4 of us got the pork tenderloin sandwich. Although it wasn't flowing beyond the bun like a good tenderloin should, it was still very tasty. Fries were satisfactory, although I prefer crinkle fries in a diner.
It was quiet for a Friday evening which leads me to believe it might be a popular lunch spot.
The waitress's only mistake was not asking us if we would like to hear about their dessert selection. As we were leaving the restaurant there sat a pie case with an assortment of wonderful pies !
Well, there's an excuse for another visit.

We've eaten here twice as a family. The food is "nothing to write home about," but it's not bad. Portions are big. The menu has a lot of variety for breakfast items; something for everyone's tastes. Their biscuits could stand a little help. They're kind of dry and heavy. I recommend the toast instead. The prices are comparable to other diner/cafe's in the area. Breakfast is served all day long, which is great for day-sleepers or late-risers. The service was very good both times we came. The owners (husband and wife) were nice and attentive. The coffee is actually pretty good! I'm not a big fan of restaurant coffee in general, but the coffee here is smooth and balanced. They never let our cups run dry. As other reviewers noted, the place could use some updating; but on the plus-side it's clean.

Came here for breakfast and was not disappointed. Decor is dated and not fancy, but that's not the reason we came. I had the Haystack, which starts with a big hash browns (deep-fried) base, with chopped sausage, gravy and eggs with cheese on top; toast included. Nice-sized breakfast and it was very good. We'll be back! Suggestion: Normal hash browns (on most other plates) are not as good/crispy: if you like crispy hash browns ask they be deep-fried.
