Small sit down cafe with an atmosphere of making friends with those who visit. If it's not too busy you'll get a seat. Waitress was great and the order was satisfying. Great restaurant funny posters and signs inside.

We stopped with or family and everyone enjoyed their food - the biscuits and gravy are fantastic, and the rest of the breakfast items were prepared perfectly. Specially kudos to the spinach artichoke omelette!
