Love this place! Pete(the owner) is almost always there to great you. The staff seems to always be cheerful, and actually happy to be able to wait on you. The food is way above average, and pretty extensive menu. Try to eat here 3-4 times a month.

We went to the Continental for the first time for breakfast and we were pleasantly surprised. The food was great and the server was very nice and told us of the few cheap breakfast specials that they had available. My 2 year old son got a sucker and a small bear when we left which was nice. We were told... More
