We've been there twice for Breakfast so far an liked it both times. Nice big fresh eggs cooked just right: over easy & medium. Omlet's are big, you better be hungry. I liked the pancake special as they were big and fluffy cakes. We also had the French Toast. While it wasn't bad it wasn't as light and fluffy as... More

We eat here about once a week. The meals low priced and plenty of food. Remember breakfast and lunch are the only meals served. The staff is always friendly and filling your coffee cup.

We've only eaten breakfast here. Service is Great!! Food is simple breakfast items; nothing fancy. The name is very fitting as it is simple food, simple atmosphere and great friendly easy going service.
