We had the yummiest breakfast here. Started with great coffee and then followed up with terrific waffles, scrambled eggs, crispy potatoes, super porky flavored bacon, biscuits and gravy. OMG, everything is soooo good.

The restaurant was simple but it did have good food. It did have some funny stuff in the back including a real Edsel car in the back. I never would have seen it if I didn't go to the bathroom. We ate simple food but...More

7:30 on a dreary, damp Tuesday. Nice music, not too loud. Coice of tables, and plenty of staff. With the comfy chairs and the wooden floor, and the high ceiling, it a very pleasant atmosphere. TV's on, but no volume and not obtrusive, due to...More
