We really enjoyed our breakfast at this cute and cozy place. Husband had the basic breakfast, scrambled eggs, hash browns and toast. Everything was great but the hash browns were terrific! I had a huckleberry pancake (small, which was plenty big enough), with a side of scrambled eggs. Also sprung for the $2 real maple syrup for my pancake, which... More

The menu is "diner"...and comfort food deluxe made from local sources. Its not expensive, its casual and you will find the locals there. When... More

The "smallish" (menu description) huckleberry pancake hung over the edges of the plate and was crammed full of berries. You can order real maple syrup. They make their own jams and the biscuits to put them on. Very homey little cafe for locals and lucky visitors alike.

The breakfast was simple... More

It's a nice little place with unusual decorations. The food isn't gourmet but is very tasty. Clean and friendly staff. The grill is pretty quick at serving the food.

Small restaurant, can watch the cook, best waffle I've found, varied menu, friendly atmosphere, no eatery is perfect. I've eaten there for years with no problems. Might even see a personality there.
