Breakfast was delicious, served hot and truly cooked to order. Servings are very generous in portion. Traditional breakfasts are served as well as specialty items. I cannot say enough but encourage you to visit. The restaurant is spotless and the service wonderful.

The breakfast at the Vault, so named because you can eat in the old bank vault, is unique and tasty. Whatever you try, you will have plenty and at a reasonable price.

This funky little cafe is located on a corner of the town square. Blink and you'll miss the sign. You can't tell if it's open until you look close. I think it's open for breakfast and lunch only. We found it just by driving off...More
