This resturant has a wide variety of food. They serve breakfast all day. I love thier omlets. The price is mid-range and the staff is good. They also have good pie.

We stopped here for brunch. The food was good and staff kept up with refills and even offered to go cups when we left. We bought 3 cookies and got 3 free. They were yummy as a snack later in the day!
