We found this little cafe & it has become one of our favorites. Clean, warm atmosphere, good menu choices (especially breakfast). Get there early on Sundays.....there's usually a lineup waiting outside for a table to open up.

Went there for breakfast and they had an extensive menu. The food was fantastic and the portions were very big and endless coffee. Service was very good and would go back anytime for breakfast. Not the biggest place in town but was clean with a family friendly staff.

Surprised at the size of the menu (breakfast menu looked good) but our group of 5 were there for lunch. My chicken salad sandwich had a good flavor but the bread tasted a day old. Everyone else seemed ok with their choice (the order of cold salmon salad looked the best). Think only one Waitress and she was quite busy... More

Old time, friendly diner style waitress. My husband's favorite breakfast joint. He has biscuits and gravy. I stick to eggs with the good biscuit

The visitors center recommended this place to me. I got the Denver omelette special. It was a huge 3 egg omelette that came with toast and hash browns. It was more than enough for 2 people for breakfast. Prepared fresh and very tasty. This is obviously a local's hangout, and the waitress seemed to know everybody that walked through the... More

We have always enjoyed a wonderful meal at the Dining Room. The décor is pleasant with colored table cloths and chairs having colored covers. the waitresses are pleasant and sometimes comical! Our food has been very tasty. I especially recommend the salads, omelets, and breakfasts. I have heard that they serve excellent ribs one evening a week but you have... More

Clean, unhurried atmosphere. When the salt and pepper shakers and the bathrooms are clean, my rating is high and this restaurant hits that rating.
