Lunch special today was steak fingers. Came out hot. Mashed potatoes and cream gravy were good. Always enjoy the lunches. Want a burger? Ask for handmade patty . Don’t forget the handmade onion rings!!

If you love old school authentic country breakfast you must check this place out ! Lunch and dinner menus as well. This place is full of charm and reminds me of cafes built in the 1950 era .
