Friendly, old fashioned American food. Just the place to be in winter: good coffee, good breakfast, great burger, good scones and delicious muffins--take some to go.

I love eating here the coffee is great you get in you sit down right away. Shortly after you order the food it's there and it's so good the prices are very fair. Waitresses are very good and the service is very fast. It's worth driving there because it's so fast and so good even if you don't live there.

We stopped for lunch and we're delighted with the Huge menu. Brenda was a lightning fast server who did not rush us but was most helpful. They had breakfast all day and several pages of lunch ideas. My marinated portobello mushroom sandwich on a ciabatta roll was a pleasant treat. We also got to see the knitting group in the... More

Good food, service was good as well. Had the homemade sausage, biscuits and gravy and it was delicious. Have eaten here quite a few times and its a warm, friendly atmosphere.

The setting is that it is in the great village of Cazenovia. The place is very comfortable. Get a coffee, a meal, a snack, whatever and hang out in the front lounge and relax, read the paper and enjoy why you'd go to Cazenovia to begin with. Help is very friendly and helpful, and no one is in a hurry... More

I had a small wrap with chips and it was good, great dressing. The sweet potato fries were nice also, but $5.99 for a small basket was a bit pricey. Nice little cafe.

They have the regular diner menu and also offer local specialties as well. They also make homemade soup that has never disappointed. It is a very family friendly atmosphere which is frequented by locals. They... More

As out of towners we were unsure where to have a decent meal. Boy we were happy with our choice. I love an open kitchen as you can see the food being prepared, the cleanliness of the kitchen and habits of the cook/waitstaff. Dave's passed muster on all accounts. The menu is varied with breakfast served all day. They close... More
