Very reasonably priced local short-order cooking. Breakfast, burgers, sandwiches and soups, with homemade pies. Service was fast and friendly, food was fresh and good. Decor is formica and old chairs. Loved it.

Great food with a real warmth from the local crowd. I had breakfast there, and lots of good conversation with the "regulars" even though I was from out of town.

This is a place that those who live and work around town like to frequent. Kind of like "Cheers"...everyone knows your name. Run by a passel of sisters and their offspring, this is a good breakfast and lunch spot.

If it wasn't for the staff the rating would be lower . They even have a prayer request list at the front which says a lot . The food and the furniture both need updating . I keep going for the hospitality.

It is a small place...what some would call a hole in the wall...but the food is good and the wait staff is very friendly. Give it a shot at breakfast when the coffee is hot and the eggs are good and fresh. It has definitely...More
