We discovered this gem 4 years ago and wanted to make sure we returned on our trip this year. Yummy food for the whole family. Timely and friendly service by the manager. We had to wait 15-20 minutes to be seated because they were already filling up at 830a. But the manager said to come back and he would save... More

We ate here this last weekend, and will most likely not be returning. We have ate here before and returned based on a good meal we had there last year. My how tings change, we sat ourselves at the first table in the door, next to the front counter. We were seated for almost 15 minutes before we finally had... More

Stopped in for breakfast on a short weekend get away and discovered this place is very popular. We had a 15 minute wait for a table for two because it is a small, quaint cottage with limited seating. We were greeted by the owner who was very friendly and on top of every little detail going on throughout the restaurant... More

A fa tastic little place with a warm, friendly atmosphere. We were seated right away and given the right amount of time to decide without the awkward wait. Our waiter Sonny was affable and comfortably chatty. We ordered the wipeout with the extra egg and the poppers. What can I say, it was incredibly tasty and filling. Definitely going to... More

Great experience, A must go to,,, A family operation !! Sonny Ray was delightful to have as our server. We had two of our dogs with us, very surprised when they provided us with a K9 menu that we did order from for our dogs.

Really a pleasure to eat here., The food is great, the setting is lovely, and the service is first rate. We arrived early, so managed to avoid the long lines waiting to get in. But it would have been worth it. The limited menu is valid, given that those few things they do, they do quite well. We were there... More

Bright restaurant with outside dining. The service was OK and so was the food, but it took a very long time to get our food. Seemed like the kitchen needed a better system.
