We like to eat where the locals eat and this is the place. You could tell by the crowd, that this was a favorite. We ordered eggs benedict and hash browns came just as we ordered. Breakfast was yummy. Our server was friendly but not obnoxious and checked back with my husband repeated to refill his coffee. He was happy.... More

LaRue's has the best breakfast in town and the lunch is amazing as well. This is the only pace we go when we go out for Breakfast. The service is outstanding and the food is even better.

Didn't really care for the food choices here. Service was not very good. Prices were reasonable. Just okay.

Some of the best banana nut pancakes I've ever had. The coffee was delicious. The staff was very friendly. But you can only pay with cash or check(who carries checks anymore).

Upon entering , signs that they do NOT take credit cards. I was seated and waited 10 minutes and never saw a waitress. I walked out. They were no busy, so I can't come up with an excuse for them.

Wife & I had a Sunday breakfast there, as had heard favorable comments. We weren't impressed. Wife had Eggs Benedict, and she's had better. She was sick the following day & night . . . was it the food? I had standard fried eggs & bacon. Eggs ordered over medium, but they were runny. Potatoes were greasy. Bacon, done, but... More

Another local favorite you need to get too early if you want a seat on the weekends as this place gets packed. The food is good, and service has always been pretty fast even when they are busy. Portion sizes good. Make sure you bring cash, as they do not take credit cards. They do provide and ATM in the... More

Stopped here early on a Sunday morning around 8:45 am and was able to get a table immediately. Which I felt was somewhat of a rarity, especially on a Sunday morning. This is definitely a local place where the staff knows several of its patrons on a first name basis. They have a nice variety on the menu and the... More

This is a tiny building that has LOTS of great food. The owner is usually there with his sense of humor. Very family oriented and it's the only place we know where you can order buckwheat pancakes! It's very inexpensive and they give you alot of food. It's all fresh and just tastes wonderful. The staff has been there a... More
