Did not actually get to eat because the staff informed me that my tiny dog was not welcome outside on the patio. I thought I was in New Buffalo. He is well behaved, clean and on a leash, unlike some diners I saw there.

We stumbled across this place when driving through town, and it turned out to be a great breakfast spot. The waffles were fantastic, and everyone else in the group seemed to enjoy their food as well. Fast and friendly service as well.
