Excellent breakfast, served all day. A variety of pies. Changing specials every day. Reasonable prices. More of what a cafe used to be. If you walk away hungry it's your fault, generous portions.

Great little home town cafe. First time visiting, I will be back. Food portions were large and tasted great. Our server - Ellen - was excellent. The cafe could use some upgrades, like carpet, but great food and service made up for the few shortfalls....More

Home town atmosphere with home cooked menu. Good menu options for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Portion sizes are great for the hungry diner!

Old fashioned, dated and cramped make this place a perfect small town diner. Food is cheap but very good. Specials are always perfect comfort food.
