Casual and homey. We only can comment on the breakfast, which is always excellent no matter what you order. Chicken Fried Steak and Eggs is some of the best I've had--thick gravy with large chunks of sausage in it. Family owned and operated and friendly staff. Very reasonable prices too!

This is a flashback to old local neighborhood cafes -- real homemade soup, pies and sandwiches. I'm very picky about biscuits-and-gravy (too many places use wallpaper paste or mixes) -- the sausage gravy here is real and yummy. Delicious! Expect slightly slower service compared to fast-food, but it's worth the wait. Enjoy the homey grandma's house decor and let the friendly waitresses refill your coffee while you wait.

All of what we had was home made, and great. We have had: chicken pot pie, a wonderful turkey/grilled cheese sandwich, and the the endless fish dinner-- this was better than any we have had in San Diego county, AND it is all you can eat! The batter was light, and not thick and gummy like some places, the fish was good quality white fish, all cooked just right, not too much, and not dried out. And the home made pies are just like your mother's: flaky crust, and the fillings were not watery, just lots of good fruit. Couple that with friendly service with a smile, and how can you go wrong? The price is modest--like $2 pie-- Give it a try, you will not be sorry.

We had to wait awhile for a waitress, and the restaraunt was not even crowded. Then I stood at the cash register and waited to pay my bill, while 3 waiter/waitress walked right by me and did not even acknowledge that I was there. Food is so, so, for the price, and they don't give you much. I will never go there again. I would rather eat so,so food with good customer service any day, than bad customer service.
