Great food and friendly staff. They managed to surprise us with even the most ordinary stuff like pancakes, omelets and even oatmeal. Highly recommended if you are in the area.

This is a great quiet slow paced restaurant. Food is great. Staff is super. This is a warm, inviting place to sit, visit and eat great food. Nothing bad here so try it all with confidence that the food speaks for itself.

Customer service is great. It's a family owned restaurant. Food is great too and reasonable. There is just quite a wait when you order but it's worth waiting.
