Good place for breakfast and not pricey. Comes out hot. Lunches are "home cooked" variety. The pies are very good. They have a varied menu.

food was just so, so to me and it was cold, I went here because of the rave reviews and pictures. I did not find the food to be very appealing, big pancakes that were tough.

I've been there three times now, and in always impressed with the kind waitresses. They are all older women that I get a strong grandmotherly feel from. I must also say that I've always been hungover when I ate there. Service is gracious, atmosphere is...More
