Ain't nothin' fancy here, and that's what makes it prime. Plan on a bit of a wait, regardless of the time you go. Food is served on paper plates and the utensils are plastic, but the service is great and the food even better. Warm...More

Busy on the weekends but well worth the wait. Friendly staff and great food make this a great place for breakfast. Our kids all love the design your own pancakes and the maple syrup is the best in the state.
