Hey, this is a good little spot for good basic food. I had the burger which was juicy and fresh and properly cooked. Others had the omelettes or salads. Prices were reasonable. You can't go wrong with a family run business like this. I noticed...More

Right across the street from our motel, came highly recommended. It was quite noisy, and the first thing we saw when we sat down was a silverfish running across the floor. Apparently they are harmless but not what I want to see in a restaurant....More

The food is always great. Everything is homemade. The inside needs a bit of updating though. Love the fact that you can also buy pre made meals from their freezer.

This place is a local gem and highly underrated by the tourists that come through Lake Country. My number one breakfast spot in town!
