During the holidays and extended winter season -- can you say "snow day"? -- it's good to know of a terrific place to wander in wearing your galoshes and start the day off right, even if it's a little later in the day!

Homemade cheese curds are fried, savory, light, crunchy and addictive!

You can order jalapeno cheddar toast for your bread service.

Red bliss home fries are prepared with house seasoning salt.

If you eat there in the day, they offer a 20% discount for eating there for dinner that night. I was tempted, but the hostess at night said they didn't have any of the larger tables available . . . I can't do what I do at a tiny two-top!
