The Coffee House

If you’re in the mood for an old fashioned breakfast at old fashioned prices swing on by The Coffee House. Take your pick from any of the standard breakfast dishes, try one of the specials (I recommend the Orange Blossom) or try some local favorites like fried mush or potato cakes. This one is for the early birds though because The Coffee House is only open for breakfast.
