I was visiting family in DE and we stopped here for breakfast. Gloria, the waitress, was pleasant and shared the history of the place and how they rescued it to keep it open through transition. Great eggs, coffee and all!!

I stopped here for Sunday breakfast. The service was both fast, friendly and professional. I ordered a western omelet with scrapple. Both arrived quickly and were tasty.
