Where else can you get a great cup of coffee, traditional breakfast, and awesome Chow Mein @ 8AM?! The service was excellent and the prices reasonable. Too bad they close @ 2:30 PM or we would have returned for dinner.

The breakfast at Darren's Cafe was so good! We ordered the Chicken Fried Steak, Regular Pancakes, and Chocolate Chip Pancakes. They were all amazing! The price was very reasonable as well and the waiters always ensured that our glasses were never empty.
