Breakfast was just so so. Gravy tasted canned. Coffee was good. If you eat here, bring cash or check book. They do not take credit or debit cards.

Great place for breakfast! Excellent corned beef hash and eggs! They always provide great service and eggs are always cooked to order. Quick refills on coffee and friendly people working there. Glad to be a local!

We eat there as a group every year. They are always very friendly in putting tables together for us. The town looks deserted outside when we come in January, but they always have a good business of the locals. The standard country cooking is good....More
