Our place is like a Perkins, or Embers. The food has always been decent. Their biggest problem is they are rarely open. They keep odd hours.

We tried lunch.

The Cranberry Monte Cristo was a full sized plate of food and was verbally reviewed as quite good. It visually looked good and according to the person who ordered it, the strawberry dipping sauce was delish. $9 a plate and came with one side. Soup (broccoli and cheese) was ordered as the side and tasted fairly typical of bagged soup at a restaurant. Good just don't expect homemade.

The Hot Beef Plate - OH, please do not order. It was thinly sliced deli roast beef (I think maybe 4 slices?) that was dried out along the edges. Crispy even. These are placed on a grilled piece of toast (Vienna bread with only one side grilled) with very salty gelatinous "gravy" that was skimpy at best. It is a $8 plate. You can order a side to go with, so if you want potatoes (isn't that just built into a hot beef plate????) better make it your side because this plate comes without potatoes. That's right, it is thin meat on white bread with canned gravy for $8. I did order the potatoes. The potatoes are fabulous if you like a rustic. I do, so they were good.

The St Croix Club was ordered by the final member at our table. It came with just two slices of marbled toasted bread, lettuce, tomato and you get one side. Ummmm doesn't a club mean turkey?? $8.50 for this "sandwich" with no meat short a few slices of bacon. Possibly it was mismade as a BLT? But there you have it. Mistakes were made often, so if you do eat here, really watch your order. Double check everything.

The service was good if you minus the mistakes. Honestly, probably just won't return tho'. I am reading others have enjoyed breakfast there. Possible the kitchen crew is better in the AM?? Drinks are $1.99 and chocolate malt was $5. Chocolate malt was average and skimpy compared to other places in the area who charge $5 for this same item.

Our table was clean, the floor was clean, our waitress checked with us about our meal and drinks the average amount of times to feel attended to but not interrupted.

What a great place for an outstanding breakfast and a fresh pot of coffee! Try the veggie skillet - it's amazing.

Great service, too. Marge is as a good of a waitress as you'll ever find.
