Good local place for breakfast. Not a whole lot open around 9:00 am. Small parking lot, but nice down home local restaurant to eat. Staff friendly, food mediocre, prices cheap.

My daughter and I ordered bacon/cheese omelet, bacon crispy along with the sides. My daughter ordered a side of bacon crispy. The side of bacon came 1st about 10 minutes before the meal. She ate that. The omelets arrived, bacon not cooked in the omelet, omelet was not cooked, whites in the omelet were undercooked. Told the server, she took... More

Owner was the rudest person we have ever met. Guess she doesn't realize who keeps her in business. We had a table where the sun was in my husband's eyes and there were no shades on the windows. My sister-in-law pulled the cafe curtain so it would block the glare. Imagine our shock when the owner came over and told... More

Very good home cooked meals. I especially like their breakfasts! Prices are right too! Small parking lot but usually one is available!

The whole theme of the restaurant is clowns. It was my choice for breakfast, but honestly, I would not eat there again. I ordered hash-browns (crispy) and what I got were two of the frozen kind, barely done. I ordered a cheese omelet, and that was okay, and the coffee is good. But, I'd go somewhere else next time.

This place is amazing! The food is excellent, the prices are extremely reasonable, and the staff is very, very kind and friendly. I was there for breakfast with a friend and there was plenty of food on my plate. Highly recommended for breakfast or lunch. It's usually open from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. They have daily specials as well.... More

First visit. Actually sorry I just missed the breakfast specials which sounded good and priced reasonably. Family environment..with a clown motif. Food was good, basic entrées, some with 2 sides. Tried the liver and onions, was a little tough. Green beans were not hot or particularly flavorful. Variety of sandwiches,soup and salads. Seemed like a locals venue so that invited... More

We love it. Not fancy. Reasonable prices. Great coffee! Fabulous specials, check the board daily. Ample portions. Circus clown theme. Best pancakes anywhere! Only open for breakfast and lunch. A don't miss! Can be busy peak times, but this is a great place to bring the whole family.

Too busy for servers and food was not like you read in the advertisement. Too small for comfort sitting.
