Just a normal small town cafe. Nothing special. They are very strict about exchanging items. They have a $1.00 charge fee for sharing a meal. Waitress was OK but not very friendly or welcoming.

Nice friendly cafe. I ordered the cod and fries and it was good. Light flaky fish. Fries were a bit bland but still good. Hubby ordered eggs and sausage with pancakes. Pancakes were good but sausage just ok. We really enjoyed the biscuits and gravy....More

We ate breakfast here in the morning before we went on an 80 mile ATV ride. The food was very good and the servers were all very friendly! We’ll definitely go there again the next time we are in Indian River!

Fantastic breakfast, home made corn beef hash was simply outstanding. Had to have the Irish Omelet more than once. Very clean facility and friendly staff.

We joined some friends for breakfast at this clean and bright spot a few days ago. Everyone enjoyed their omelettes, pancakes, eggs and breakfast meat, and the service was fast and friendly. Nothing extraordinary, but a solid place I would visit again.

The wraps are delicious and the service was great. It is located in downtown so that is good. Desserts were also very good

Very friendly spot. Food was decent with a good assortment of breakfast amd lunch items. Could use more vegetarian friendly lunch choices, but they serve breakfast until two, which was perfect!

A nice cafe for a quick lunch. The service was very fast and the menu choices were good enough. Waitstaff were ok, but not specially friendly.
