Excellent breakfast place- eggs were perfectly cooked, I had the bacon and my husband had the deer sausage. The home fries had so much flavor! Coffee- hot and fresh and the orange juice tasted freshly squeezed. Service was also excellent.

Stopped for breakfast. The food was delicious and the service was great. The experience was that of a hometown diner. I observed as regulars walked in, the staff greeted them by name. Though I was not a regular, I still felt that hometown kindness. This...More
