We always enjoy eating here. It is a small restaurant but is clean and the food is very good. Vegetables are always available. Don't think you would regret eating here.

Fantastic omelet with home fries. They also have corned beef hash. Not a big fan of their biscuit, but it is good. Family diner atmosphere. Pleasant wait staff. Busy at breakfast time.
