We enjoy meeting friends here for breakfast before we start our day. We have had lunch here as well and it's been good. They are not open for dinner though.

Our daughter and son in law took us there for breakfast. Things were OK until we looked into the kitchen and a little closer around the dining room. Not a pleasant sight. The food was OK but noting special.
