We stopped in for breakfast after a race. The service was good, and food was served quickly. Prices were reasonable and I would definitely go back when I am in town again. The cinnamon maple French toast was yummy.

The food here is so great. The setting is very hometown dinerish. Get the maple pecan French toast....to die for. The staff is friendly and attentive. The menu selection is huge and great for any meal. Don't miss this place.
