This place is nothing fancy, but the food is terrific. They also have such a friendly and hard working staff. You will also not leave there hungry. If you love breakfast you will love this place.

This restaurant offers home made food with huge portions. The food is served piping hot, and it is very flavorful! The hash brown potatoes are crispy on the outside and so soft in the inside without grease! The scrambled eggs are light and fluffy!

This is our favorite restaurant for Sunday breakfast. The portions are huge and the prices are reasonable. It is a small restaurant and usually there is a wait on Sunday mornings. But it is worth the wait.

Breakfast and lunch cooked from scratch. Commercial street is reliably good. Nothing real fancy, just good flavorful wholesome food.

Good coffee. I recommend the veggie omlett. It was a hearty serving and loaded with veggies. Next time I'd like to try something else, but I'll have a hard time not ordering the delicious veggie omlett again! Waiter was very attentive.

If you are ever close to Emporia around breakfast do not miss this restaurant. The food is authentic small town grubb. I mean that as a extreme compliment. Do not miss this eating establishment
