This is a popular meeting and eating place for tourists and 'locals' alike. You can always depend on an eating spot that's frequented by first responders and retirees. Good biscuits, hearty portions, waitresses with ready smiles and an endless cup of coffee.

They have it from time to time. The menu specials change daily so you may want to call ahead to make sure it is available. They are very accommodating.
