Had breakfast there this morning. The table was visibly dirty, the dining area unswept. The food was tasteless and served in chipped, cracked plates, and there was hair in the breakfast sandwich. Absolutely unacceptable!! The waitress was very kind, so I crumpled my napkin in...More

Home style cooking at its best is our mantra. You are met at the door with our abundantly filled pastry cases. The shelves are filled with our homemade layer cakes, flaky pies, iced cupcakes, fruit crisps and so much more to tempt you on your way to a table. Kitchenette can satisfy all your cravings whether it be an oasis from the cold with our own hot chocolate topped with a homemade marshmallow, or a steamy bowl of chicken soup or a hearty meal of turkey meatloaf and mashed potatoes. We are a home away from home.
