Make sure to stop by if you a motoring through Missouri. Great food, great staff, and a little break from the chain restaurant food. Kids cleared their plates and that's a sure sign of approval.

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.
