We really enjoy this restaurant. It's full of old time memorabilia mostly from the 40's and 50's. A lot of it is from the local area. The staff is friendly and the food is generous in servings and very tasty. Best of all they have their own bakery and when you walk in there is a display case full of... More

It's a cute building and has a charming interior. The three-egg omelet was good, the hashed browns OK, and the marbled rye hot buttered toast delicious. The herbal tea was weak. The only mistake was ordering the chocolate-coconut cream pie. HUGE piece, too sweet, better to get a reasonable portion and only the coconut part. Wish I'd ordered the blackberry... More

Good food, good atmosphere, good people, bad coffee. I never understand how a restaurant that has so much going for it continues to serve sub par coffee. If you eat here enjoy a good meal in pleasant surroundings but order something other than coffee to drink

The food is really good, comfort food. We ate dinner there and I would go back. The homemade soup was excellent and the ribs were tender. I highly recommend it!

The service was fairly good, but no check back until meal was 80 percent finished. This was due to the server taking on more tables before she did the check backs. For me, that's a no, no. The portions are pretty good for the money, consequently I had no room for their luscious deserts. So had to get it to... More

The old time decor is very cute. Parking lot and entrance accessible to those in walkers. Typical lunch fare of sandwiches and soups was very good.

Well, first, parking is very limited, but you can park on the street and walk. Food was average cafe food. They have a pastry shop as you come in or go out. Great apple dumplings. I had a croissant sandwich, but it was dry. I would try a burger next time.

Thank Linda W
