Do yourself a favor and take a few extra minutes to turn off 90 and visit this terrific local small town breakfast spot just five miles away. Great food and the nicest people working here. So friendly! Plus, it couldn't hurt to avoid a truck stop for once, could it? Tell em the guy from Jersey sent you!
This place is as small town America as it gets. The Decore is that of an actual small town Resturant, not the fax stuff you find in the suburbs. The way I discern is that there are things of varing age. While the Resturant was only here for 5 years in it current iteration the building is much older. The Decore is very attractive. There is a classic counter for singles, 8 table tops and 8 booths. This local place is family owned and it is clear it is a mother and daughters working. There is the warmth of a family place where people are taking pride in what they are doing. The good: The staff was very welcoming and engaging. They brightly started small talk and were very prompt on coffee refills. The coffee was good. Even though there were only two staff they were clearly working hard to take care of the breakfast rush. I ordered the country platter which was a fresh made biscuit hash browns 2 eggs and sausage smothered in really eggcellent gravy. The eggs were light and fluffy. The hash browns were shoe string and cooked well. Everything was made to order. It took ten minutes or so to get out, but to me that is way better that prepped line food. The bad The bathrooms only heated by a baseboard heater so a little chilly. The sausage links were meh.
Stopped in during a cross country road trip - well worth it! Fantastic biscuits and gravy, great omelet, and hot coffee! Service with a smile to go with it all =)
