We only ate breakfast at this restaurant. Everything we had was excellent. We had blueberry pancakes, yogurt with fruit, eggs, sausage links, coffee and orange. All good choices.Service was excellent. It is owned by a family and they are very friendly.

Not bad breakfast, but nothing to write home about. They don't take cards, so be sure to bring cash.
