Great local breakfast joint! The pancakes are huge and delicious. The waitresses work together to wait tables which makes service incredible. Busy place, but very good breakfast! Definitely a must! We will return.

Food and service was very good but the music was a bit loud for a morning spot - hard to carry on a conversation. We had the option of sitting outside and we wish we had. Nice little spot for breakfast .

Off the beaten path but worth the trip. Large portions and very good. The shrimp hash was great. They allow dogs on the deck and the inside is nice as well.
