A delightful Amish buffet!! Gift shop is fun and baked goods available for purchase. My family enjoys this special place for the food and atmosphere. The menu looks good too, but we always do the buffet for the variety,

I have not eaten breakfast there, so I am not sure. I checked their website and it indicates Friday and Saturday from 7-10:30 am. Hope this helps.
