Deer hunters will be especially happy Monday since a special buffet breakfast is being prepared for them.
Owner Rhonda Kyne will have an early day because the buffet begins at 4 a.m.
It’s all about getting folks fed before they head out into the woods.
Breakfast favorites will be featured, including ham, bacon, sausage, chipped beef gravy, eggs, sausage gravy, pancakes, French toast and plenty of fresh coffee.
This is a new venture for Kyne since she and her husband Bill haven’t been in business for a year yet.
It opened last Thanksgiving, and has quickly become popular with local folks who love the food and friendly atmosphere.
People visiting the Potomac Eagle tourist train in nearby Romney are also discovering the Hampshire County eatery.

While the food is delicious, that’s only the beginning.

“If you want a relaxed atmosphere, and want to get great food from friendly people, this is where you want to be.”
Linda Evensen, also of Augusta, said the hand-cut sweet potato fries are one of her favorites.
“I love breakfast here, but the burgers are really good. And the barbecue is delicious too since it is homemade and not from a tub. One of these days I am going to try a milkshake. I saw one once, and it was pretty impressive,” she said.
