Great little place to stop and have a breakfast. They have an antique shop right next door over and you can literally get lost in there for hours. The food is good, and the service was amazing.

Been here a couple of times for breakfast!! The service is excellent and the breakfast is always done perfect! Being in the medical field, there are times I am rushed to eat, yet, after the shift is done, I always come here for a good breakfast!! Definitely a gem in this small town.

Nice little local cafe. Staff is friendly and courteous, but a little slow and inefficient. I had their chicken-fried steak (a favorite of mine). The hand-dipped batter was light and crunchy.

Wonderful breakfast food plus we really enjoy the relaxed atmosphere. This time I ordered the Western Omelette with Grits and both were prepared well. Our cousin ordered the #2 and the pancakes looked tasty. Four people and no leftovers should also speak well of this café.

Really liked the food... once we got it! Took a long time to order and the staff who poured water declined to take our order... wasn't their job. Okay, so how about getting someone for us who does that job?! Really?! Not sure I would go back...
