Be prepared to wait but it's worth it. Great food, great prices. It's truly amazing how many great dishes can be made with a few eggs. This is down home dining. Not romantic and not quiet but the food is terrific.

My wife and I have eaten all meals here, and they are always not only good but local food as well. This is a restaurant that is good for anyone, whether a meat eater, a vegi or vegan, there is always something on the menu that is not only good but meets your dietary needs.

The very kind front desk staff asked us if we wanted to wait, btu we said we were really only looking to try their biscuits and gravy. They suggested we just order a takeout biscuit! It was ready in no time and they let us eat at the... More

French toast was a plate full w/ strawberries, blueberry compote, and lemon curd. This was the special of the day. Sweet potato hash unusual but, really good dish. Like the hot teas..served in a little pot. Nice place, same wait staff year after year. Also, be sure to get some jelly/jams from the farmer that sets up outside. They serve... More

No frills place to have a great breakfast. The pancakes were delicious and the bacon was OMG delicious. Best coffee ever. Great menu. Opens at 9am, get there 8:45 or earlier for the first seating. Otherwise there could be a long wait.

Went for a light lunch. Wanted soup and a side. Cold and blustery out and soup was what I was after. Staff was accomodating, nice and tried hard but the ROASTED RED PEPPER and tomato soup when it was served was CREAM BASED (ugh-I can't do dairy) and it had to go back. Darn, I was SO HUNGRY for fresh... More
