Breakfast Spot

“The BEST breakfast in town!!!! Owners Jeff and Becky have created a local gem for sure with this little diner. It happens to be only 4 short blocks west of our residence off of Nees Avenue at the corner of Cedar Avenue (only a 7 minute drive). Try anything on their menu and you will NOT be disappointed. Even their coffee is out of this world! But you better bring a good appetite as their food selections are not skimpy! ”
