Great selection of breakfast items. Service was fast. Biscuits could be cooked a little longer for me next time but good taste. Self serve coffee. Mom and Pop place so that gets an extra level,for me. Small seating area.

Food tastes like I cooked the food. The food was great. Service was good and facility was clean. It's a great place for family and friends to dine in a very casual environment.

I love local diners, especially for breakfast. This one was okay, but wasn't what I was looking for. Service was friendly and quick, and I like the no frill experience. The food just didn't do it for me. My husband got the biscuits and gravy;...More
