The locals will tell you this is the best place in town. Tiny place dishing out great breakfast food - home-baked muffins, pancakes (huge), french toast, etc. A great way to have a yummy meal and get some local flavor. In the downtown highlands strip.

Everything is cooked fresh to order and is absolutely delicious. The dining room is always packed, and the locals definitely support this restaurant..understandaby so. French toast is to die for... :)

This eatery has their act together. The muffins are out of this world. The prices are very low for what all you get! The atmosphere is small town and the patrons are very friendly.

Very informal counter ordering. They have limited seating which was full when we visited. We did take out. It seems to be very popular with the locals. Great food at a very reasonable price.
