Spotted this place behind the Shell petrol station when we were in need of coffee and some late lunch. Don't let it's rather drab exterior put you off. Standard menu that you find in many places - burgers, sandwiches, dinner plates, salads - but a...More

We walked over to Lawrence's from our motel. The friendly waitress informed us that she had just sested a party of 18 in a back room and service might be slow. We stayed anyway. The service was not slow at all. The food was coffee...More

We stayed at the Keefers Inn and headed over for dinner on a Saturday evening. The interior is a bit simple. The food was ok and the chicken linguine Alfredo better than the tilapia. The prices are reasonable but the service was a bit slow.
