Great place to enjoy Eggs 'n Hotcakes and plenty of refills of hot coffee too. The staff is friendly, courteous and cheerful. We have been coming here for the past year and we always enjoy our visit. Everyone is so nice .... our favorite server is Trudi.

Very clean and the friendliest Hispanic waitresses you'll ever come across. The breakfast was delicious with big portions. The grilled cheese and fries were the best Ill ever had. We also had shakes and ice... More
