Abby was a good waitress. Half order of pancakes were huge & loaded with blueberries. The Monster Messy bowl was delicious & hearty. In a nut shell, it's a farmers omelette covered in sausage gravy & cheese. The strawberry preserves are made in house & taste like grandma's. They didn't mind that we brought our own almond milk for or... More

First off the food is fantastic. Fresh and reasonable price. Having said that, even if it was not I would go back. Jessica was great. Attentive and always has a smile. Working in hospitality a smile goes a long way. Thank you for a wonderful stop on our trip.

Great place to eat. Homemade food and great service makes for a great meal away from home. I eat here often for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Local gathering place. Various price ranges means everyone can find something in their budget

We go here often. My husband loves the buffalo (bison) burgers and I think their hamburgers are the best! Chicken noodle soup is very good. Nice, clean place. Excellent service and friendly atmosphere.
