Had a backdrop of a few policemen getting breakfast and coffee and had to check out all the rooster memorabilia surrounding the entire restaurant. Added a nice feeling. Was unexpected when we stepped inside but is now a nice treasure we share... More

This is a small place, family owned, very friendly. Their service is very fast. My husband and I come in here for breakfast on the weekends sometimes. We love their breakfast sandwich, During the week we call and order a couple ahead of time, and pick them up on the way to work, usually done within 10 minutes.
