The food, with many of the ingredients sourced from their own farm, is excellent. If you like diner atmosphere this is for you!

No frills Diner with awesome comfort food. You feel the love from the moment the aromas hit you. It's old quirky and fun. The specials always run out because they're awesome. To me it's a must visit if you like comfort food, folksy spirited service and good cooking!! I love it.

OMG this is a little slice of cuteness, deliciousness heaven! Fun and cozy atmosphere, delish diner food but many of their produce, meats, and eggs are local and well-grown.

We eat here every chance we get when in town! The menu is extensive and everything is so good! The atmosphere is great, all the locals as well as tourists stop in! We have never had a bad meal and have a great time! Coffee is the best and their burgers, salads and sandwiches are the bes!

nice place for any traveler to stop and have a bite. hubby and i both had different burgers here along with one ample portion of sweet potato fries as a SIDE. very good for the price and burgers were cooked to our individual desires. nice waitress, but she seemed a bit frazzled perhaps having to wait on too many tables...

I've visited four times and everything I've tried tasted delicious! Quick and friendly servers too! The little apple orchard hangout in the back is a great lace to read, relax or just enjoy the beautiful weather.
