Honestly, I don’t know why I don’t eat there more often. They serve an excellent breakfast and the staff is super friendly. I recommend the traveler omelette or the sausage gravy and biscuit.

Scones, juices, eggs, salads, BLAT sandwich is one of the best in town. Order @ counter so great for large groups since each one gets to pay for their own.
