Stopped here early on a Sunday morning for some breakfast. There were only a couple other early risers in the place, so there were plenty of booths and tables to choose from. Service was also pretty fast. Finally decided on the biscuits and gravy, which...More

The pot and pan omelet is the best.The potato pancakes and KETTLE CAKES are worth the trip. Great breakfast. Great pies.

The grilled corned beef hash is the best! I do wish they had some gluten-free sandwich options, but hey, I can skip the bread.

What a great place to find! Fast friendly service for our group of 5, and all of our food was great! You would do well to visit this gem, if you have the chance.

Went for breakfast last Sunday morning, found the service to be fast and friendly, coffee was always kept up with. The food came faster than we expected and everything was exactly as expected. Very good experience and we will definitely be back again.

Their fried chicken is amazing. The meat is moist and tender, and the coating is perfect. It's not as heavily breaded as KFC or Lee's and the taste is perfect. Service was friendly and fast.
