A little something

Cindy is the youngest owner-manager of the diner in Elkton. She just took over the cafe last month. She is serving Harold an egg and something. He always orders "a little something." Only Cindy knows what that is.

Breakfast 15 minutes before it's ordered

Carla always has a warm smile and a good word for all the regular customers who sometimes want their breakfast 15 minutes before they ask for it.

Morning coffee in the cafe

Early morning and the farmers are rolling to see who has to buy morning coffee. This morning it is not difficult to see who will be the buyer.
