Breakfast is the busiest time of the day, and it opens at 6.am. The restaurant is full in the early morning with the usual early risers, white and blue collar workers, city workers. Biscuits and gravy, sausage, pancakes with syrup, eggs any way you like, yum yum! The large breakfast for the hungry man is The Wrangler Breakfast. . It consists of 2 eggs, biscuit, sausage gravy and taters. Pastries, Espresso Drinks , and hot coffee is on the menu for all to get up and go!
This Coffee Shop is a center for community activities. Clubs want a nice atmosphere to hold meetings. This lovely restaurant invites people to come in. What could be more wonderful than a steaming cup of coffee or a cappuccino! They have many kinds of flavored syrups, Vanilla Caramel and English Toffee sounds yummy to me.
Noon Chow consists of soup and sandwiches, pasta and salads. On my first visit I had a bowl of French Onion Soup. It is one of my favorite soups. It was delicious! There is always a daily special. On my most recent visit the special was meatloaf , mashed potatoes, and green beans. I love meatloaf but I just had meatloaf a few days prior. I ordered a salad. It was good.
I can’t talk enough about the pies and cakes. I ordered Lemon Meringue pie! It was Delicious.! They have only home made pie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Everything is fresh. An apple pie, and an apple cake just came out of the oven the first visit I had. Honestly, I have a weakness for cakes and pies. Compliments definitely to the chef!
This business could not run smoothly without the dedicated workers who work here.The cook is an important asset to this Coffee Shop. Preparing food is hard work.and everyone can’t cook. The waitress was fast, very nice and smiled a lot.
