This is one of the neatest restaurants ever!! The decor is cute--lots of writings on the walls, sayings, things to make you think--just fun! The food is amazing and plentiful! Good down-home breakfasts, great burgers and sandwiches. And fast!!! It's obvious the food is prepared fresh, but they are fast!! The omelets are terrific, peach tea is wonderful, burgers are...

Food and ambiance were just right. Relaxed, welcoming, hospitable, comfortable with their popularity without having to remind everybody of it. I had teh traditional eggs and bacon, my husband had an alamosa omelet with green chili.

We went for breakfast on a Sunday morning. We got there around 8:30 a.m. and walked right in. By the time we left, the waiting area inside was full and people were waiting outside. Arrive early for easy seating. 9:00 a.m. seemed to be the start of the rush. This is a great little place. We've driven by it many... More

It is situated in a house converted to a restaurant. This adds to the friendly home atmosphere. The servers are very friendly and quick. The portions are enormous and relativity inexpensive.

We ended up coming here twice for breakfast because it was so good. The French toast was perfect, and the biscuits and gravy was peppery and delicious. A nearby table got a cinnamon roll that was immense, so we may head back for another visit to try one!

Had the Porky Pig Omlette today and it was excellent. Lots of meat! The homemade jam was wonderful! I go here about once a month for lunch but decided to get breakfast today instead and it is just as good. Parking available in back (just becareful of the pole).
