A great "Mom & Pop" café. Small but friendly place to have breakfast. Busy with local folks. Service was fast and friendly. Good prices for good food and large portions. Small parking lot.

Went around 930 on a Sunday morning and had a short wait for table of 3. It is seat yourself seating but people waiting ahead of us offered up tables they couldn't fit in. Great service and food was good. Worth the wait.

This place was also recommended to us and it was pretty good. I had an omelet and it was filled with my fillings and cooked very well. The Egg dishes are definitely better than the pancakes here. But all in all it was pretty good.

It has a really fun atmosphere and the food is really good. It looks like it is in a little run down area, but it was really good food!
