This is your classic diner, where they serve breakfast all day. I had the country fried steak, potatoes and eggs. They were all fantastic, as was the cherry pie. If I lived here, I would eat here often.

We stopped here last Spring and love the place, good tasting food and a frendly staff. Your order comes out cooked just as you like so fast it's unbelievable. We wish we had stopped here years ago instead of waiting so long to do so.
