Staff is very friendly, accommodating and quick! Breakfast was amazing, as usual. I love the fact that all of Shirley's breads are homemade. From scratch. 😍

We ate brunch here and everything was great that we had for breakfast. It's a very local feel and the staff was extremely friendly and welcoming. It's very spacious and a good place to relax from highway driving.
