This place is incredible. It's true, the building is an old Denny's restaurant, but the food has nothing in common. Food is all freshly prepared from scratch. They always have yummy unique specials and the prices are excellent for the type of food you receive. Very convienently located for travelers on I-5. Easy on and off.

Best Omelette ever! The whole family enjoyed every bite. Gravy and biscuits were a hit. Service great.

My wife and I were heading south on I-I5 and needed to fuel-up our Truck and noticed this cafe right at the end of the exit ramp. We decided to chance a visit as it was close enough to our lunch time (10 a.m.). This appears to be an older, but clean and well maintained cafe with a friendly waitress.... More

They're open for one meal but it's a good one. Regionally known for a great breakfast, this place is located just off of I-5 and I try to make it a point to stop here when I'm traveling through the Willamette Valley. The staff always are friendly and helpful. I'm a diabetic, so I an be a bit high-maintenance as... More

Our drink came right away. Very good coffee with real cream. ($2.75) Ordered the Florentine scramble... eggs, sausage & spinach ($13) & a side of biscuits & gravy... More

The chicken fried steak was really good. Super friendly server and quick service. Chicken fried steak was cooked perfectly, the gravy was tasty, but I like shredded hash browns. I recommend this place.

This place has some fantastic food! I had a french toast that was covered in corn flakes and stuffed with peanut butter. It was one of the best things I've ever had! My wife had chicken fried steak. It was fantastic as well. The steak, hash browns and eggs were all cooked perfectly. I would highly suggest this place for... More

Came here for Breakfast and was great. I had bacon, sausage, eggs and hashbrowns, my Wife had Eggs Benedict. And very fine it was too, the sausage was some of the best I have had for breakfast and the eggs were cooked just the way I like em. Will be visiting again.

Friendly staff and great Breakfast and Lunch menu. If you're looking for a place to get good food, I would recommend stopping here. I found this by chance while on a road trip from Seattle and passing through. This place will be on my list of places to stop when I'm back in the area.

And maybe the best in town. Wife and I stopped for a late morning breakfast on the way to Eugene. Sign on building says in business 12 years but prior to that (from the looks of the building) it was obviously a restaurant before becoming the present establishment. For breakfast I had the house made corn beef hash (with 2... More
