Quaint restaurant in a converted old house. Great family restaurant! Most everything on the menu is good. Breakfast is second to none. Lunch and Dinner items feature things like a wonderful ribeye steak, baked potato soup, great salads, and sandwiches!

I'm so sorry you were uncomfortable on your last visit. One of the major downfalls of operating out of 1901 house in Texas instead of a commercial building is the heating and cooling. We have four residential air conditioning units ranging from 3 to 6...More

My late husband and I used to go there for a delicious, healthy, breakfast. Now, my children take me for special occasions. Local, good food, good service and reasonably priced.
