Great local establishment. The very best pies we've ever had. Family owned and it shows. Everybody is pleasant and great service. Our waitress said she worked there "forever". Food was fresh and served quickly.

This is a family favorite and a common location for a weekend breakfast. We always enjoyed our food and the bakery goods. Service is professional and efficient.

You can always find anything you want at "Round the Clock" If you have a taste for virtually anything, you'll find it here. My favorite place for sugar free pies as well
