Feels like a small town cafe... Caramel / Iced rolls the size of your fist, EXCELLENT breakfast. Service is fast, fun and friendly. Seating in close proximity to everyone else there - but that is part of the fun. Do not miss this one!!!

My husband and I love this local eatery. It is a great place to feel a part of the local community of Medina, and enjoy some great food.Pictures cover the walls with diners past and present. My favorite is the biscuits and gravy eggs benedict. They also have traditional as well. I always say I am going to share this... More

This is a small, quaint venue. Lately we have gone on Thursdays for an amazing turkey dinner. Recently we had the best corned beef dinner EVER. We are now regulars.

Love this place. Great local flavor and atmosphere. Omelette are great, french toast is great. Love the service. Waittstafff is very pleasant and courteous to kids and families. They treat you like you are a regular, even when you are not. Place is small, so you might have to wait, but they get you in and out quick. Cute booths,... More

A must stop if you are in Medina! The best breakfast you will ever find anywhere. The place is small but that's the only way it should be. You just can't find hospitality like this anywhere. It's so inviting and down to earth. The lady that owns it is there always helping wait tables and making sure everything is to... More

Food is pretty good. Coffee is fair. Very popular with locals. For us not a "go to" but if driving by and feeling hungry we stop in especially for breakfast. The owner, Peg, is a philanthropic supporter of the community.

We go to Peg's quite often for Sunday breakfast. The food is delicious and varied and perfectly prepared. The staff is efficient and friendly. The surroundings are homey and friendly. A great way to start Sunday.

This was our first time at this roadside restaurant that we've driven by numerous times. It was so surprisingly good. We went at lunchtime, but my wife and I both ordered breakfast and it was fantastic all around. It's no wonder the parking lot always seems full every time we drive by. This not-so-hidden gem will become a frequent stop... More

Great homestyle food and great atmosphere! You can't go wrong eating here - small town atmosphere is awesome. Give it a try and ask to meet the owner Peg if she's there! : )
