This has got to be the best breakfast joint within 50 miles of Algoma and, conveniently, it's right in Algoma. It is an old school diner with a ridiculous egg/hash brown ensemble that is 100% yummy. The fish and hunting pics on the wall give nice, local flavor, and look for the biggest coney you ever saw.

Small locals cafe with excellent view of the lake. Try the hashbrown sandwich. Rest rooms out back, thought that was odd.

A small local diner with terrific food, HUGE portions and a great price.We showed up as a group of 10, not realizing that there are only about 15 tables for four in the place. We enjoyed looking at the fish and scenery on display, and the view of the bay is lovely. The very pleasant waitress quickly set us up... More

The place to get a great breakfast. Better have cash though. No credit cards at this place, but worth it. Ice cream and lunch are also really great later in the day.

Stopped for breakfast while visiting Algoma. The food was very good but a little slow coming out of the kitchen. There was never an empty table during the time we were there. As soon as one table opened up it was filled. Some people had a short wait. Many locals eat breakfast here so you know it's good.
