Everytime I'm in the area, I always stop at this restaurant. Truly home cooking served by a friendly staff. Today I had the chicken fried steak which was done perfectly. The portions are substantial since most include soup/salad and corn bread.

Friendly local diner ("Cafe") that serves the standbys; Meatloaf, Chicken Fried Steak, etc. The service is excellent and attentive without being 'tip vultures'. The food is good to great value for money. I recommend highly for family, friends and out of towners.

They are known for their monsterous cinnamon rolls. My sister in law ordered the cinnamon roll French Toast. It looked delicious. They have lots of other standard breakfast options too. If you just want something to go, stop in at the bakery.

Not crowded at all on a Tuesday night. Our meals were quite tasty. Reading about the cinnamon rolls forced us to order one for dessert. DO IT. Hands down, one of the best ever. We took most of it home to savor at another time.
