The million dollar bacon is $5 for 4 strips but it is amazing. The turkey club sandwich was great as well. Iced tea was pretty good too. Outdoor patio is nice to sit and eat. Their regular bacon was not that great.

I love a good breakfast and they have plenty of options. I also enjoy meeting people here to eat and talk because it never seems like it is overly noisy- even if they have several customers.

I ran across this place when searching for restaurants near the Monon trail. It advertised local sourced meats, organic items and fresh ingredients. We thought we would give it a try as we like to try new local sourced places. I was impressed. The food...More
