Stopped in for breakfast with some folks from work. Service and food was spot on (as usual) for this restaurant. I'm not a breakfast person so it would take a lot to impress me. I liked the food but to me it's pretty much all the same anywhere. It's worth the try if you're in the area.

This is a great little place for an honest breakfast at an honest price. The service is excellent and so is the food.

We stopped for a quick breakfast before heading back to the cities. The food was excellent, the price was right. It has a great small town feel to it. I would definitely stop back when in the area.

You won't find a better breakfast in town. The prices are great, the service is super and the food is wonderful. Get here early because it stays busy, and bring your appetite.

We were looking for a mom and pop place to have a good, cafe style breakfast. We hit the jackpot! "Best french toast ever - next to dad's" said my 10 year old. "Best hash browns I've ever had" -from my 22 year old.

We came here after not being able to get seated at the brunch buffet at Arrowwood. We were pretty famished at this point. It was so nice to get a table right away and to get waited on right away in a restaurant that was adequately staffed. It was nice to be noticed by the staff. The server was friendly.... More

We wanted a place that had a great breakfast at a decent price and this charming little cafe hit the spot. The waitress was friendly and the owner even came out and said hello. The food was great and the prices affordable. If you need a super breakfast or lunch at an affordable price, this is the spot for you!... More

We were staying at Arrowwood Resort and decided to go off-site for breakfast and we were very pleased with this hometown cafe. The kids loved the hot chocolate and the pancakes. We would go back again when going through Alexandria again.
