We were in town for a class reunion. We ate here 4 times because the food was great at a reasonable price. The service was wonderful. Everyone was friendly. They serve an excellent breakfast. Their cook knows how to cook eggs.

We eat here all the time, rarely have anything bad. Salads are fresh, daily specials are always good. Lunch time they have a soup and salad bar that is very good. We highly recommend eating here!
