“good service, great food, great value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2012

We ate breakfast here while on vacation with our twin toddlers. It is cute and small and it seemed like there were regular customers at the counter chatting. The server was helpful and attentive, getting us booster seats and even toddler forks. They had toys for the boys as we waited for our food, which was hot, fresh, and tasty. I especially recommend the biscuits and gravy. I expected a little more warmth and friendliness, being in such a small town and with young children, but there seemed to be only two very busy people working there. Overall, we had a great experience.
