We took a break from Volcanoes national park to eat, and this was great choice. It is very close to the park and had very good food!

We ate breakfast here on our last morning in Volcano, and it was great. We had pancakes, and then the breakfast sandwich with eggs, cheese, and tomatoes. It was delicious and the coffee was good.
