Wanted to go to the library and decided to try breakfast from the buffet. It was about 9:30 am. At first glance most breakfast items did not look fresh and were almost close to the bottom of the table pans (maybe it was late). Despite...More

Very good thin crust pizza, custom made as you like it. 16" pizza for $10 during the day, Mon thru Thurs. Quality and price can't be beat. Could use a little more sauce, a little less cheese. Extras are just a $1.00 each. We are...More
