If you are looking for fancy ambiance, this is not your place. HOWEVER, if you are looking for a solid breakfast with home-cooked goodness, then this is definitely your place! We ordered omelettes and actually got to choose which fillings we wanted to customize to our own tastes. The fillings were fresh and plentiful (mushrooms were not from a can,... More

This is a greasy spoon type place. The food is good, prices are pretty decent and portions are good, too. The service could be a little faster. One person I know complains they smell like grease after eating here. It does get quite busy, so that's a good sign.

If you're looking for a place that's familiar and has great sticky buns this is it. You get that small town all American diner feeling when you walk in. Good food at a great price.

We stopped in around lunch on a Saturday. The place is a little unassuming - the oil change place next door kind of makes you look past the place. The reviews brought us in, and it was very tasty food. A little on the greasy side, but very good flavors in the stuffed hashbrowns. The bacon is very good, as... More

Soup and salad bar is always fresh and tasty. Everything is home-made and their bakery items are awesome! You can't go wrong with anything on the menu.

Really want to like this place as it is nearby. Have gone there several times. The first time it took forever to get our food, probably an hour or more. I like their omelettes and the staff are nice enough. I do have a problem with their hours. Keep thinking they're open an hour later than they are, so find... More

Another highly recommended establishment for breakfast and bakery goods. This place was just fantastic. Food is delicious, the coffee flows in a friendly and comfortable ambience. Took home some cookies and pumpkin pie and they were extremely good, I had to share on Fb. But that stuffed hash brown with ham/ mushroom/ spinach and a side of poached eggs had... More

Yes, really. Stopped in for breakfast on our way through town. Restaurant wasn't really busy but one large table of about 7 people ordered just ahead of us. We waited for an hour for our food, but no one came to tell us what the delay was or offer any apologies for the wait. Food was fine, but nothing outstanding.... More

One of our group needed a refill on his coffee. Got the waitress, she sends a kid who services the whole restaurant but my buddy. That sums up the service. The foods OK, nothing to write home about.

We went here prefering a sit down to a fast food. Pluses...good location and cheap prices. Food is decent. Negative....we ordered breakfast of just eggs, pancakes, saugage & bacon & potatoes......it took an hour to get! It wasn't busy....but the cook must be slow. My husband said his eggs were cold. Coffee is weak. It's just a little family owned... More
