Wonderful, hometown breakfast. I had two fresh eggs which came with two pieces of toast, 4 or 5 pieces of wonderful crisp bacon, and excellent coffee. This is a family owned and run business. Try it!

I stopped and had one of the breakfast omelets and it was one of the best that I had ever had. The young men that were waiting on us were very friendly and helpful.They are a family run operation and everyone was very helpful.

Had breakfast here a couple of times last week. Family run business and three young men were working each day I was there. At my last visit the couple next to me at another table were complaining about the slow service... they must have been from California!! I found the food and service excellent. I had ham and eggs with... More

We randomly picked this stop for a quick lunch as we were driving to Hamilton. What a treat! The food was surprisingly excellent....I always wonder if cafe food is just prepackaged and frozen....not here! My husband and I split a club sandwich and it truly was the best club we have ever had. The portion size was huge so we... More

Some remarked at slow service but I think when making good "homecooked" food, you should not expect fast food. Our family all loved what we ordered - our son got the Trapper and it was huge! We...
