Diner style menu with good service. Food came out pretty quickly and was tasty. Could be a bit cleaner, especially the restrooms.

Stopped in for breakfast. Food was merely ok. Price was reasonable. $30 for my wife and I. There server though, seemed like she was to busy to serve us. And the place had very few people in it. Won’t return.

We were just out window shopping and enjoying the day. We came across this place. The food was good and reasonably priced.
