Food is always good...and we breakfast here twice a month. The wait staff treat you like family remembering what you like to order and always smiling. It is the perfect place to start a Saturday or Sunday morning!

We enjoyed a nice healthy lunch here with choices from either the breakfast of lunch menu. I had a scrambled egg dish while my husband enjoyed a very special BLT. We also took home a rhubarb tart. Delicious. Great service.
