It's worth the visit for the Shakes. They have a great burger, breakfast menu as well as other common American fare.

Stopped in with friends for a quick midday refuel. The space is a very cute authentic drug store/diner, and the area of town is quaint. We got a table quickly and enjoyed the fried chicken biscuit. In and out for under $6.
