Best breakfast and coffee in town. Food is always great, the servers and hostesses are the best. Ray and Nick always take a minute to stop by the table to say "HI". Been eating at this restaurant for years. Never seem to disappoint.

We as a family go here often. This is our go to place. They treat us as part of their own family. If you want a welcoming restaurant this is your place!

I love to go here for breakfast, but it's great for any time you are hungry. The servers are pleasant and help each other out. The food is great, It's a family owned place and it shows because you're treated like family.

Good food at a good price. Served however you want it. If you want to add or remove something from your sandwich or meal it's not an issue.
