We were walking around in the downtown area and came upon this restaurant and decided to give it a try. It is a pretty small restaurant (maybe 15 to 20 booths/tables). We ordered burgers & the philly beef sandwich which were all very good. The...More

So many choices, so difficult to decide. The food and the service were both excellent and I even got the chance to talk to a regular customer at the "community" table, who gave me a lot of insight into the town.

Food was good, service was polite and friendly. It was standard breakfast fare that filled the void in my tummy. I'd probably visit again.

The service was excellent, the food great, and the atmosphere pleasant. We had hamburger and pancakes...chocolate chip/pb pancakes were excellent! They close at 2 p.m. and the restroom is at the back of the small kitchen area.

I suggest calling ahead. It’s a small comfortable place. Not sure they could handle a group that big.
