Excellent food and prices are fair. The atmosphere is friendly and the services is great. If you enjoy small hometown diners, B&B is the place to go!

Have had breakfast there 3 times now. We’ve had eggs, skillet, omelets, pancakes and everything has been very good. Charming place with friendly and efficient wait staff. Average price. Oh and I can’t eat pork so I love the turkey sausage.

The cooks do not wear hair nets, or headgear for use, just, in the kitchen. Baseball caps, that probably are worn outside of the kitchen, are worn by a few. The entire head of hair needs to be covered. This is a sanitary issue! The...More

My husband and I come here at least once a month. The meals are tasty and service is good. The one downside is depending on the time of day, meals can take longer to make. Service staff is top notch.
