Their variety of breakfasts are a local favorite and if you're looking for fresh-baked rolls -pastries-you won't find any better. Lunches and dinner -equally good.

Thank you for visiting us. We are glad you enjoyed it. I hope you visit us again soon. If you enjoy pasta we usually serve it every other Thursday evening. Luckily for us we had it two weeks in a row 😁

This was one of the top-rated breakfast places on Trip Advisor, so with the B&B Cafe being closed on a Sunday, we headed here with high hopes. It looks like a big chain when you walk in, so if you want cozy and quaint, go...More

Perfect for our two kids aged 1 and 4. Delicious breakfast served all day. They even made my daughter's pancake in the shape of Mickey Mouse. Took a cinnamon roll home to enjoy after our long drive home. If you're hungry and need to safely...More

If you are looking for home cooked food, this is your place. Menu is very large, portions a good size. The actual restaurant could use a face lift. Very clean, but tired.
