My Husband and I came here today for the first time. Very busy and popular restaurant. The atmosphere was unique and cool. We had the breakfast buffet. There is a big variety of food and fruit. The prices are decent too.

Abele’s Family Resturant is always a great place to have delicious food at a very fair price. Wayne & Ellie, the owners, are always very kind when we visit their restaurant.
