really nice people, really homey, fresh cooked food. Takes a little longer, but real food does take time to cook

Where do I start? The breakfast is to die for, the western sandwiches are 4 inches thick and the French fries divine. The owners, Alex and Denise are so welcoming and friendly, it reminds me of the show "Cheers." Sometimes you wanna go where everybody knows your name and they're always glad you came. The waiting staff go out of their way to make you feel at home; there is always lively conversation and banter that gives the restaurant that homey feel and when you taste the food, you are hooked. Please stop by. You'll be glad you did. P.S. The hamburgers are homemade and who knew Alex could turn a grilled cheese sandwich into a masterpiece.

I've been going to Fernando's since it was taken over by the Mother and son who now own and run it. Good coffee. Great breakfast, served with an orange slice. Get there before 11:00AM if you want poached eggs or the cheaper breakfast price. For lunch you can get a great fresh salad instead of fries if you ask for it. If you want fruit get the waffle plate. I especially like the club sandwich or the western, served with their own cut fries. Check the hours, they are closing at 2:00PM these days and closed Mondays but the hours change with the seasons.

Took 15 minutes for waitress to take order and another 45 minutes to get served lunch...and it was not even busy. Waitress was bothered that we were unhappy with slow service. They were out of key items (ie: burgers, milk). Food was nothing special.
