My family had breakfast here one morning. The waitress was very good and the service was prompt. I thought the omelet that I had was good but my family said the food was average.

Great place for a homemade style meal. Large portions at reasonable prices. Great variety of omelettes and pancakes and everything else that makes up a good breakfast. Can't wait to go back!
