Now named, "Golden Waffle Cafe," this family-owned, independent restaurant is open only for breakfast and lunch. My wife and I enjoy breakfast here at least once each month, and are never disappointed. The food is well-prepared, and the portions ample. Recommended.

The service was very good. The menu provides an extensive choice of waffles as well as other breakfast items. The portions on the Griddle items is huge. The Booths are a bit cramped and no tables were available at 7AM. (only booths and counter).
