Competition is tough in Cashiers but this is a good one especially for lunch and dinner. We came for late breakfast on a weekday and the omelets and pancakes were fresh and fun. The wait staff young ladies were friendly but had to keep checking with the chef in back. It's casual and off the beaten path in a shopping... More

The restaurant has a very homey feel, and the wait staff is courteous and attentive. I had the apple caramel waffles, which were delicious. The breakfast meats were very good and blueberry pancakes were fluffy. The prices are very reasonable.

Have eaten there several times this month for lunch. Very popular place with OK food but last several time service has been bad. Slow, not friendly-seems very inexperienced. Even when asked the "manager" for some assistance very slow reaction time Have not had breakfast there but understand very good/popular

Very good food at reasonable prices. We stopped in for Sunday brunch and were pleasantly surprised at the food quality at reasonable prices. The only complaint we had was that a larger group was being very loud and distracting.
