Server substituted cottage cheese for hush puppies. Friendly, attentive and helpful. Reasonable prices. Located on left of route 35 at south end of town. One complaint: air was set too cool for us.

Great breakfast menu. Restaurant always busy so service can be very slow sometimes. AC always blasting...I hate to eat when it is too cold. Love their chicken fried steak.

Big hearty breakfasts of all types ... food was excellent, staff was... More

Go eat here. Just go! Food was excellent, with generous portions and great flavors! Short stout plate was a hit with us!

Cute little mom and pop restaurant. Vegetarian and vegan dishes along with typical meat, poultry, and fish dishes. Very fresh salad bar. Met the owner who graciously discussed the "secret" contents of her dishes and altered them to suit our vegan requests. Food was delicious, very reasonably priced, and service was excellent. We will definitely return on our next visit... More
