It's still the best place to get breakfast in Copperas Cove!! It's a mom & pop run organization. The food is plentiful, and they get your orders correct. We eat breakfast there for a week, all was good!

Have been here several times for lunch and breakfast. Food is cheap, plentiful, and adequate. Diner is average and waitresses are generally friendly. Definitely a favorite with locals. Nothing special, but we enjoy going here. Mushroom burger is good! And they'll give you a refill...More
