Wow, what a great breakfast. We ordered the same thing. Eggs benny in baked potato with bacon and lots and lots of fruit. Everything was delicious. Great selections for breakfast. Service was very good and friendly. Can't wait to return. Thank you.

This is a wonderful local eatery with "home style cooking". We love both breakfast and lunch there with generous portions and well prepared food. Pies too are great. Have a cushion under your seat so that you can look over the meringue on a lemon pie. We usually forget that we should split a sandwich and have a soup. That... More

Went to this place in the mid- 00s and was blown away. So much so that a decade later I brought my wife here to give it a shot, if only to see if it was as amazeballs as I recalled. The short answer- yes it was. The long answer- Holy moly this is the best breakfast place i've ever... More

We have been a customer for over 20 years and have never had a bad experience. The food is always piping hot and the service is great. Staff are always friendly and pleasant. It is like eating a home cooked meal and the prices are very reasonable. This restaurant is number 1 because it deserves to be.

This is a great spot for breakfast, but you should come hungry, since the portions are generous. Healthy and tasty options abound, and the service and décor is warm and friendly.

Great home cooked food, locally owned. Good prices. Only thing preventing 5 stars is that it is a noisy restaurant (always busy) but that doesn't prevent me from going.

After reading the great reviews, my wife and I decided to try it for ourselves. We were greeted quickly and had a nice table. The decor is what I would call country and the place was very clean and busy. Cheerful atmosphere with lots of locals enjoying their meals. I had the halibut and chips and it was very good.... More

So glad I discovered this restaurant because the food is INCREDIBLE. It's one of the only places I take my whole family to because everyone loves it, and they are a super fussy bunch. The staff is by far some of the friendliest I have ever encountered and they actually act like they really enjoy their jobs and make you... More
