This little family restaurant is a treasure. Owned and operated by an Albanian family, this restaurant offers yummy home cooked food at great prices. There are daily specials written on a chalk board, but also a large menu with a great deal of variety. I simply LOVE the Mediterranean burgher. The chicken and dumplings soup is like grandma used to... More

My family absolutely loves this place. Privately owned, I would rather go here than Perkins any day. They have a large variety of breakfast selections, lunch, and dinner. The pie is very good, too.

We had breakfast on Saturday around 9:00 a.m. The Parking lot was mostly full but we were still seated right away. They have a great selection and some unique items like their Mediterranean Eggs Benedict that was amazing! Service was fast and friendly and their coffee was good. We will go back again!

Friendly service. Meal was hot and brought out on a timely basis. Lemon meringue pie was fantastic. Lots of meringue, nice crust, wonder flavor on the lemon. Will certainly visit again.

My wife loved this place so much we stopped twice for breakfast during our short stint in Madison. Friendly and attentive service, food was great - real easy to get to, right off the freeway.

Read reviews of this place. Crowded parking lot. Many locals here. Right off route 12/18 but 6 miles off I39/ I94. So almost 13 miles out of the way. Worth it to me. Love these kind of local establishments. My wife and I both had breakfast. Might have given them excellent review had my over medium eggs not been almost... More

Since we were staying at a hotel near Fish Hatchery, this was a convenient place for dinner. The food was acceptable but not memorable. I had the club sandwich and house salad. Rather than have me make my salad from the salad bar, the waiter did it. He was a little too heavy on the dressing. The sandwich was tasty... More

This place is awesome. Family owned. Servers are fast and friendly. Try the biscuits and gravy or an omelet. Must try spot.

Locally owned diner type restaurant. Menu offers many different options. Great for breakfast and lunch. My favorite is the Monte Cristo Sandwich! Great service from pleasant staff.
