This is a very traditional café serving just breakfast and lunch ... everything you'd expect from traditional pancakes/bacon & eggs, sandwiches, roast beef with mashed potatoes, and other diner food to omelettes and skillets. (The skillets are huge but Jan will make you a "mini"...More

Hands down, the best in town. Corned beef hash with onions was the best I've ever had. The scrambled eggs were perfectly cooked (most places overcook them) and the hash browns were nice and golden/crispy. The tab for two: $20. And that included a full...More

We stopped for a quick breakfast before heading back to the cities. The food was excellent, the price was right. It has a great small town feel to it. I would definitely stop back when in the area.
