This is the place to go for breakfast in Highland. Brad's Big Breakfast easily feeds 2 or more. They have great breakfast food, no matter what you order, at a reasonable price.

Local fine establishment that offers home style cooking breakfast and lunch. I primarily eat here for breakfast, but they do have a lunch crowd. All the meats are from local producers as well unless things have changed. the waitress's are on top of it and the service is great.
