The restaurant staff were very friendly and welcoming throughout our dining. Excellent value, we highly recommend this restaurant.

This is a must go to restaurant! The food is delicious and the people are so friendly and kind. They are located in a wonderful area near Sara Bay Marina. The food is homemade and it is out of this world the best restaurant I've been too on my vacations. Reasonably priced and extremely clean.

Stopped for dinner. Great variety on menu including all-day breakfast. Service is great and staff are personable. Cafe is neat and clean. Philly sandwich was delicious including Apple pie a-la mode. Going back for breakfast.
