Nice fresh salad bar and homemade soup or chili and great cornbread. We thought it was excellent. Waitress was friendly and accommodating.

Asked for crispy bacon, it was soggy. The eggs were under cooked. The hash browns were overcooked. Not a great meal. They were understaffed as well. One guy to handle the entire breakfast rush.

Breakfast and evening meals here. Could live on their French toast :-) Reasonably priced and convenient for guests of the Hotel next door. Probably other places to eat but this did us well for two days. Also happy to modify meals to suit vegetarian requirements.
