I went to breakfast with a group of friends. The breakfast specials were very good and reasonably priced. The service was good. Everyone enjoyed their breakfast. The veggie omelette is very good!

Stopped in to discuss business matters with my partner over a huge warm cinnamon roll! The owner took the time to stop by our table and meet us - wonderful atmosphere and friendly service all around!
