Very good home cooked meals. I especially like their breakfasts! Prices are right too! Small parking lot but usually one is available!

The whole theme of the restaurant is clowns. It was my choice for breakfast, but honestly, I would not eat there again. I ordered hash-browns (crispy) and what I got were two of the frozen kind, barely done. I ordered a cheese omelet, and that was okay, and the coffee is good. But, I'd go somewhere else next time.

This place is amazing! The food is excellent, the prices are extremely reasonable, and the staff is very, very kind and friendly. I was there for breakfast with a friend and there was plenty of food on my plate. Highly recommended for breakfast or lunch. It's usually open from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. They have daily specials as well.... More

First visit. Actually sorry I just missed the breakfast specials which sounded good and priced reasonably. Family environment..with a clown motif. Food was good, basic entrées, some with 2 sides. Tried the liver and onions, was a little tough. Green beans were not hot or particularly flavorful. Variety of sandwiches,soup and salads. Seemed like a locals venue so that invited... More

We love it. Not fancy. Reasonable prices. Great coffee! Fabulous specials, check the board daily. Ample portions. Circus clown theme. Best pancakes anywhere! Only open for breakfast and lunch. A don't miss! Can be busy peak times, but this is a great place to bring the whole family.

Too busy for servers and food was not like you read in the advertisement. Too small for comfort sitting.

This is a good little "Diner" type place. They have good coffee and breakfast. Try to make it there before 11am for their specials. If you had SOS up north and miss it... here it is. Cream Chipped Beef!! For a quick breakfast, go check out this place :)

Small, crowded and noisy. Service slow although we were there on Sunday morning. My husband had biscuits and gravy, and he is still feeling the effects, 6 hours later. My eggs didn't taste real, home fries water logged, toast small and dry, bacon okay but must have been a shortage. This is a local restaurant but, in our opinion, the... More

Stopped for breakfast and found they had a good selection for breakfast options. Prices seemed a little high for a place with a title like patches. Food was good and plentiful and service timely and professional.
