We would never have found this place if not for the internet. We were driving in the area and looked up "restaurants nearby" and found this place. It is situated by a landing site for small planes and it is not near anything else. It's a very cute little place with flight memorabilia all over - the ceiling is painted like a blue sky with clouds. Very friendly staff.

The food was good - very basic. The experience of being there was really fun though and that was the main takeaway for me. Everything was fresh and the service was good.

Glad we discovered this place.

The place lives up to the HYPE!

Located off a side road that makes you wonder if there anything at the end of the golden brick road, but yes there is. The cafe is small and not too many employees there make you wonder how fast and if they were busy how quick would they get to you. Well don’t let that fool you one bit. The staff is quite friendly and very fast in getting you drinks, your food and your refills!

Both my partner and I got a omelette and don’t let the pictures fool you. As much as they make your mouth water, the taste and flavor matches what you see. For being 3 egg omelette they sure come out looking like it was half the carton. The plates come out filled to the top, colorful and taste great!

On the plus side even on this terrible summer if you come early enough you can still enjoy the view of planes taking off without you melting!

I will definitely be back again and this time for lunch!

We stopped here for lunch after a good motorcycle ride. The waitresses were efficient and spot on with drink/food order. The meat loaf special was the best I've ever had...green beans were made with bacon, mashed potatoes/gravy were seasoned perfectly and the meat loaf was so flavorful that I couldn't stop eating it (and they gave a lot per serving). Will definitely be coming back to this place.

We eat here about once a month on Sunday morning. Open from 5am to 2ish it is built for a relaxed meal shared with friends. So many choices for breakfast that we have not worked our way through them all. So far my favorites include the chili Verde omelette and the chicken fried steak. Equally good are the ham steak and country files. Down home southern style cooking and staff who can greet many customers by name. Don't worry that you are not a native, you will fit right in. Located at the tiny airport you can watch people come and go in everything from shiny airplanes to Dusty ranch trucks. Try the morning sandwich with a cup of coffee and settle in.

Friendly service to go with fine meal. Good selection for vegetarians and meat eaters. Watch the airplanes as you eat fresh fruit and drink coffee.
