“Yay! They are open again!!”

This fabulous little cafe is open again after a year plus hiatus. The interior has been redone just enough to look spanking new, but it still looks like our old haunt. The food is excellent as always and the menu will continue to expand. Do not miss this little gem!!!

Thank Edwid

Hungry for breakfast while driving from NYC to Buffalo, we stopped at this restaurant right off the highway. We weren't expecting much, but the food quickly set us straight. The "fruit cup", which in a diner would be a teacup-sized vessel of sad grapes, apple, and melon soaking in lemon water, turned out to be a platter of freshly-sliced beautifully ripe bananas, blueberries, and strawberries. There was an extensive breakfast menu, not been available online, with eggs, omelets, french toast, pancakes, and the like. We had the classic skillet (two eggs sitting on top a bed of crisp-fried potatoes, sausages, peppers, and cheddar cheese), and both loved it. Throughout our meal, regular customers came in and chatted with Dean, who was the sole cook and waitstaff, and apparently the owner. All of the interaction made for a warm community vibe. We ended chatting with Dean ourselves about theater after our meal. He's friendly, interesting, super-efficient, and a great cook; he totally makes the place what it is. We look forward to coming back.

The owner is usually there. He is friendly and fun to talk to. The food is always fresh. Try the delicious deli sandwiches. The atmosphere has a nice country aura. Great selection of hot teas. You must try the desserts! Yummy!

This place is completely refreshing. The atmosphere is quaint, service is friendly, and food is gourmet. Go there, eat a lot, and leave big tips. This place deserves to carry on.

This is an old general store built in 1827, now a small cafe/diner. It is right off I-80, so easy to get to. The current owner has been running the restaurant for 17 years. Wonderful selection of hot and cold sandwiches, beautiful pastries for dessert. Locals sit at the counter and chat.
