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!

Diner style restaurant. Food was delicious and well priced. Staff was friendly. Clean. They only accept cash though. No debit or credit cards which was unusual.

Ate here a few times while visiting friends in the area. The servings are American sized but you may ask for a box to take away any food you can't finish. They have a variety of soups to choose from. Tried the chilli and it was good. Tried the clam chowder from someone else's bowl and that was good. So... More
