Stopped in for breakfast, nice little place in town. Quickly seated, and service was fast. Coffee was bitter, standard eggs, juice, bacon, pancakes with toast, $8. Pancakes, sub-par. All else was fine.

Ate here while visiting family in the area. Extensive menu with good specials menu. Had eggs Benedict with crab. Different but delicious if you like crab. Very busy place on the main drag.
