This is a small little cafe that is open for breakfast and lunch. Hours are from 5 am to 2 pm. Great breakfast. Medium price, around $10 per person. Food was great. It's a small place, so you may have wait a while.

Excellent food quality, quantity and service. Very reasonable prices. Pancakes were fluffy and cooked to perfection we were hash browns and eggs.
