As a business owner, I love visiting places where you can just tell people like working there. Our waiter was on the ball with our food, refills on coffee, cleaning tables around us. The staff all seemed to enjoy working there. Oh yeah, the food. The Western omelette was great. I had bacon, tomato, and cheese omelette with a pancake.... More

This is just your average diner that is open for breakfast only, but the food is good and affordable. I had french toast with bacon, my husband had the western omelet. Would definitely go back.

Good breakfast with an acceptable wait time. Nice atmosphere, polite servers, breakfast flavor is about average. I recommend the eggs and hash browns especially.

We had a great breakfast. I had the pecan pancakes and my mother had the country ham breakfast. The portions were great and the food and the service was the best. we brought back half of our food. Only wish they were open for dinner. Would recommend them to everyone.

Good breakfast, prompt and friendly service. Nothing extravagant but a good experience overall. Waitstaff was attentive and courteous. My blueberry pancakes (special) were pretty average. I would return just for the convenience of staying right next door.

Needing a place to eat breakfast as the hotel didn't have breakfast, we were in luck attached to the hotel was an awesome breakfast restaurant, in walking distance. They only serve breakfast from around 7:30 to 11:30 (I think). Anyway they serve an awesome cook to order breakfast on a laid back schedule. Sleep in and still get breakfast.

Thank Sue P
