The meals are great, plentiful and served with an extremely pleasant attitude. We have been there for lunch and breakfast, never for dinner unfortunately. We'll have to make a point of doing that.

Small town, local cafe where all the local people go for a good, basic breakfast. No frills breakfast: eggs, bacon, home fries and toast done right. Good coffee. Small with counter seating. Very reasonable price.

Everything is made fresh. Portions are massive. You get fresh baked bread and soup with anything you order. The 2 servers are the best!
