This is a must for breakfast. Excellent service. Plenty of items served family style and made from scratch. You will not leave hungry from this place. Ample parking and great for families. Love the strawberry jam and bacon.

Very pleased with the quality of food and service for our dinner last evening. If I could make a suggestion, we used to really love your fried potatoes. You ought to try serving those once in awhile or giving people a choice. They are great...More
