Got the breakfast and friends all got a variety of things including some good hot wings. The highlight of the meal though was certainly the five pieces of cake we all shared.

A true diner in its atmosphere and food. A hefty menu of southern food and traditional American favorites. Great food and big portions. A huge selection of cakes.
