Cute place. Food was delicious. The biscuit was buttery and fluffy. Cheap breakfast. Mimosas come in a cowboy boot! Need I say more! Would go back!

Great food and great service. The restaurant itself is a little dated but the food and service made that worth it :)

Small little cafe that packs a punch with their food! Love the chicken fried steak & can't wait to go back to Seattle & hit this spot again! You get a lot of food for a small price!!

Great breakfast. I had the chicken fried steak. It's was just a burger prepared as a chicken friend streak, but it was darn good. Big generous portions, I did not leave hungry. Prices are reasonable too. Come early, looks like this place fills up fast....More

Had a breakfast at this old fashioned diner, really great dining room, however the prices are not old fashioned, kind of expensive. Great service and good diner fare.
