Hometown diner with all home made food and desserts. Chicken and biscuit night is my favorite, but I can go anyday and find something I enjoy on the menu. Good breakfasts too. Food is plentiful and a good price. And the desserts - tons of...More

Absolutely love this place. Love the staff. Love the food. Prices are good. Locals bus their own tables at times!!! My brother in-law says he wishes he lived next door and he would eat all his meals here!!

Typical small town "home cooking" style place. Large portions of mediocre food. One suggestion: scrub down the wooden high chairs. They were so very dirty.

Good food and good service during a lunch stop on a Sunday. The cafe was busy, apparently largely with local residents--a good sign. Excellent deserts. Cash only. If we pass this way again, we will certainly return.
