“This is our favorite spot for the best of the classic plate of American food, a never ending cup of coffee, good service, tasty food, and lots of menu items. It's always bustling, always busy, you'll get a great big plate of food for a great price, and probably leave with a take home box to eat later. We love their breakfasts, especially, and it's a Larson family tradition to go here for breakfast on our birthdays. We call it AFR, and the owner always welcomes us by name. :)”
