Delicious breakfast and luncheon fare. Friendly service. Fairly priced. But beware, this place had lines on weekends! It’s worth the wait.

There is always a line. We parked elsewhere and walked to the restaurant. The portions are large. Tables are close together. The food was excellent. The cinnamon rolls are amazing. The restaurant does work hard to get people in quickly.

It is not dead silent, but it is definitely quiet enough to have a good conversation.
