We had brunch. The food was great albeit a bit slow. We didn't make it in time for strawberry crepes. The staff was sweet, friendly and helpful. The onion rings were excellent...some of the best I've had in a long time. Definitely worth stopping!

If you like home cooked food, this is your place. Great family atmosphere & the owners are awesome! Our family goes here quite often and have yet to get a meal that wasn't delicious. Love supporting small business!
