Quaint, cozy and nostalgic restaurant with all the WWII memorabilia you can imagine. I also take my Home Exchange visitors here when they are traveling from their home in Europe. Breakfast and Lunch are daily but dinner is only Friday nights. They do close late afternoons. Food is good and the price is right! You can BYOB to dinner because... More

What a great little place filled with so mush history and dedicated to military past and present. There are so many things to look as well as books to flip through. This is like a museum that you can touch the displays. The food is country home style. There are always veterans and current military members in the restaurant. This... More

This place makes you feel right at home. The food and prices are great. Home style cooking at its best. Parking can be a small problem.

Wondered in to the Home Front Cafe after a weekend at the Old Songs Music and Dance Festival. The place is fantastic. I could have spent the day reading and looking at all of the WWII memorabilia. We had a very nice breakfast, reasonably priced. The service was excellent. I'm going to make this a regular stop.

Visited again after a long time away. Even more historical military mementoes, if that's possible. Charming atmosphere. Food as always excellent. Experience diminished somewhat by new less experienced wait staff. Still a great breakfast!

Family owned and operated and strong supporter of our military! Great little country eatery, surrounded with military memorabilia and decent diner type food. Lots of locals and if you walk around and read the memorabilia you wont be disappointed. Right in the heart of Altamont and worth the ride . Old war bonds, food ration coupons etc just an interesting... More

There is so much to see and take in. The tributes. The nostalgia. Just returned from a Sunday breakfast. I am a first timer to this cafe. The cafe was quiet at that moment but it was lucky for us. We were able to sit and talk with the owner. She is someone very special. She and her husband have... More
