Arrived late morning and went for typical eggs/toast/sausage and coffee...;nothing special and a bit pricey. Place was mobbed and waitress was on top of things. Companion had crab salad sandwich which looked like a lot to eat.

The owners are friendly and it is considered a welcoming place to get a meal. Whenever I go for breakfast, this is... More
