Old fashioned goodness with great service and a Smile! They have every kind of dessert that you should not have, but why not if you are on vacation?

Meeting with a couple in this busy breakfast cafe. Great coffee, baked pasteries or afternoon lunch than late afternoon ice cream treat for the family. Fresh made bread coming out of the oven is something you don't see everywhere

I confess, I got a hot mocha and a cookie every day I was there. At night. After dinner. Don't tell my wife.

Stopped in for a quick bite. Had the King Spud filled with Brisket and chips and Queso but the best part was the pecan lemon bar! All enjoyed while watching clips from Grease! Food was good and quick!

The club sandwich is wonderful and so is the chicken salad royal. There is much meat and it makes a good lunch. Nice locally owned restaurant. I also love the cranberry orange scone and their ice cream. You can't go wrong for breakfast and lunch.

They do have gift cards, just call them and they will work with you to get it purchased over the phone. Then they will hold it for someone to pick up or mail to you.
