Mom and pop kind of place. It took awhile to get food. It actually was a little creepy to me. Kind of reminded me of a whole in the wall place you would see in a horror flick like Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

Small little mom & pop shop that serves a great breakfast. Homemade bread, jellies, highlight this place. It seats maybe 25, but don't let the size deter you. The bacon is thick, the home fries are yummy, and the atmosphere is friendly,

The place is simple, unadorned, plain. The food is hand-crafted home-made diner food. The staff is friendly and have been at Babe's for about 25 years.
