This is just a small little place that makes the best egg sandwiches ever. They also make very good lunch. Food is always hot, and you always get service with a smile.

My husband and I often stop here for breakfast; as apparently so do many in my family. Friendly atmosphere; where all are made to feel welcome. Very reasonable prices.

Food is good for breakfast or lunch but needs a good cleaning, updating, and a paint job. Staff is friendly and always ready to serve. Local dive.

They are open every day in the year (I think) except Christmas and a week or so in August. Even today on Thanksgiving. Try their specials...my favorite is the summer squash and onion omelet. So good. They will... More

The best breakfast you can ever eat. The Squash onion and cheese omelet is the best I ever ate. Hooked on it. Best waitresses you can have in a resturant.

The food is excellent, the price is unbeatable, and the service is friendly and cheerful. It is family owned and operated and you definitely feel at home when you go there. I... More
