Good simple breakfasts in a small town café. Usually have an egg, bacon, toast and sometimes one pancake. Weekends have a breakfast buffet as well. Simple, low price.

This is a local place, lots of regulars but they cater to anyone, friendly and quick service. The food is very good and the prices more than reasonable. On Monday - Friday, they have specials for $3.99 with endless coffee a little extra. I have breakfast at least once each week during the week and the server always remembers our... More

Mediocre café. Everything on the menu is listed a la carte to prevent sticker shock. But when you read the fine print and realize that you have to pay extra for your meat, then extra for your potatoes, etc., and you add it all up, it is very pricey. Especially when the food is mediocre and the atmosphere is sub-par.... More

Stopped in when they were busy, we got the brunch buffet which had good food but the cafe couldn't keep their buffet stocked. I think they just had a big rush but other than that they were very friendly and polite.

Good for breakfast, with better-than-average thick-cut bacon. Good chicken club and patty melt sandwiches, tasty soups, excellent malted milks and pies. It's menu has gotten a little pricey recently, but still a popular place for breakfast and lunch.

We came for breakfast on a Sunday morning. The place was busy but well staffed and food came out as it should. They have a breakfast buffet til 1 that had good variety, and staff worked hard to keep it full. I had pancakes and eggs, my husband had the veggie omelet. Very good food, friendly staff, and our own... More

If you want real home made potatoes and roast beef sandwich, this is the place to go. Saturday mornings they have a breakfast buffet that is awesome!! I always get the biscuits and gravy. It has cut up chunks of pork link sausages.
