There seemed to be a lot of local people dining there so we decided that would be the place to have breakfast. I had an omelet and my husband had bacon and eggs. Both breakfasts were excellent. Service was great and the prices were reasonable....More

Stopped here for lunch - soup and sandwich. Ordered their soup special of the day - southwest chicken. It was tasty. The soup contained vegetables, chicken and had a mild "kick". Just perfect for my taste.

Small staff worked very hard to provide good food and service. The scallops were delicious and the sides were good, too. Great meal, not super expensive.

We enjoyed our meal, eating on the outside patio. Such a cute spot, secluded and quaint. Too bad the bugs were so horrid. Part of summer living. The three meals chosen were well done... examples of excellent home cooked food.
