We ate here for breakfast and it looked like a local favorite. The food was reasonably priced and delicious. The service was good and it was a good start for our day.

I wish I had gotten out waitress' name! She was awesome! Friendly, great sense of humor, fast and efficient. Food was excellent and plentiful. Coffee was excellent & cups were kept full. Only complaint was booth was a little tight for the four of us.
