A little bit of country charm, friendly service and fantastic breakfast food make this place our family favorite for Sunday lunch. The apple pancakes and oven baked omelets are definitely worth the wait. My wife loves their flapjacks. we have never had a bad meal here and we come here about once a month. Be warned that you may have... More

We've been here many times and each time have experienced great food and excellent service. The prices are also good. They have a gift shop that is always very nice to look in. The items are changed with the seasons.

Their omelet selling point is that they're baked. which would be great, but baked whipped egg whites.... is a souffle. I had hoped they knew that and wouldnt bake the egg whites. My egg white omelet was literally so fluffy and whipped on the inside that when you tried to eat it, it just melted. Which was pretty gross. I... More

Nice homey atmosphere and friendly staff, but the prices are high for breakfast. I had an omelette and iced tea for $17 before tip. The apple pancake they feature is about $15.

I usually get Belgian pancakes with hot chocolate (delicious), or pancakes the same. The waffles, pancakes, crepes, omelettes and everything else are absolutely great. The service is as friendly as... More

Had heard this small family restaurant was a great place to eat so I thought I would give it a try. I was not disappointed. Huge omelets and home made potatoes fried on the grill. But you need to save room for the spectacular apple pancake. Allow for approximately thirty minutes to make it so order it before or right... More
