Love this place. Cozy & warm. Mural on the wall of the old train station makes you go back in time with a fresh appeal. Wait staff is on the ball & you never have to ask for anything.

Best local home cooked meals with sweet southern cornbread. Daily specials at a good price. The waitresses are fast and keep check with your table for refills. I love the chicken and dumplings. They serve a good breakfast too.
