We love coming here! The french toast is to die for! The customer service is amazing! Our waiter Katie is always the best! The decor is so cute! It's one of the best restaurants in Ramona.

the food is always fresh and excellent, the service is great. We were there on Fathers Day and it was amazing how they handled the busy patrons. It has a hometown atmosphere and they really care about each and every customer.

The drive to Ramona is via Highway 67, a road that winds its way through a landscape of chaparral-covered hillsides studded with massive boulders. It is as if nature dropped these rocks like diamonds straight from the heavens and sprinkled them about for our driving...More

Its a very small place 7 seats at the bar and maybe 15 tables so, you could probably rent the restaurant out depending on the size of your party.
