After church on Sunday my wife and I enjoyed brunch here. Chicken and waffles are a special dish, especially for the big appetite.

My fiancé and I went here with some family and friends for breakfast . Waitress was fast and efficient. Food was very good and the portions are large! Overall I'd come back and recommend.

The Baked Italian Hoagie was delicious. The 12 inch Hoagie Bun was crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. The Italian sauce made the provolone cheese, salami and pepperoni delicious. My husband ate the pound cake French toast and love it as well....More

The first time I went I got the French toast and was only so so impressed. However, on my last visit I got the Nutty Waffle and fell in love! Great service. Wait time to get seated can be long, especially Saturday and Sunday.
