Wonderful family atmosphere. There were ten of us. Father, son and grandson operated, the most friendly I've met in California. Service great. Breakfast very good. And, if you need a hug, you get one.

Clean and family friendly atmosphere. The owner waited on us. Lots of patriotic pictures on wall. Typical American diner food. Close to hotel and on Main Street. Prices were reasonable. Quick service and no real wait for food.

Stopped on way through Alturas California on way to contest in Reno. Salads were great and well portioned. Burgers great. Had a good fish and chips made from Tilapia which was outstanding. We will be back on the way through next year.

Our first time at this little cafe was a very pleasant surprise. They make homemade salad dressings. The bleu cheese is especially good. We were greeted upon arrival with a cheerful smile and chatty, delightful young man. This business is family run with a great...More
