Changed their beverages in October. As we used to go weekly, we haven't been there since and have no intention of ever going again.

Breakfast at it's best. The portions are huge and the quality excellent. The creamed chipped beef is first rate as were the eggs, pancakes and French toast. You might have to wait, but it's worth it. Friendly service.
