Great local cafe. We stopped for breakfast on a Saturday morning. Place was full, but the waitresses kept things moving. Braved a chili omelette. It was great. It's small and cozy, but the food was great as was the service.

We stopped for breakfast and had a great meal. The Cinnamon French toast was very good. So was the house omelette with hash browns. Excellent cinnamon roll. Large parking lot can accommodate RVs. No WIFI. Service was good. We recommend stopping here.

Food is good, normal run of the mill food, nothing special but nothing awful either. Just good food. The seating on the other hand is rough. Not much elbow room at all.

I had breakfast here twice during a drive across the USA and back, making it a point to eat here the 2nd time. Traditional American breakfasts, prepared very well. The cafe is popular with locals.
