An excellent restaurant for couples or families. Great selection for breakfast-standard fare plus tasty "bennies" (eggs benedict"). Servings are large-see their meatloaf for dinner. Very popular among the locals!

We keep coming back, and bringing friends and relatives with us. That's because the breakfast is pretty-much the best there is (unbelievable bacon!!!). When you go in, make sure you check the chalkboard at the far end of the bar, to see whatever the day's...More
