We have been visiting TC for 20 years and ALWAYS make it a point to visit & have never been disappointed. I do get frustrated with the long wait but it’s worth it. Not good for kids due to wait times.

This place is packed from the time it opens til the time it closes. Great homemade food. One of the best places ever for breakfast, brunch or lunch. We always make it here for breakfast.

I stumbled upon this place almost by accident and I am so happy I did. The omelets were amazing. The service was a little slow but it wasnt terrible. Definitely check this place out if you are in the area.

Perfect spot for a Sunday lunch! The coffee is great and the biscuits and gravy were a wonderful choice for a meal.
