After a poor breakfast this past summer, decided to give it a try again. To begin with it was as cold inside as outside! Not just my opinion the couple after us commented "it's sure cold in here", thus not just me! Needed coat on to eat. I ordered blueberry pancakes, and were sooo thin, no rise, & hard to... More

This was the second time I have had their fabulous Eggs Benedict here and thankfully just in the nick of time before they stop serving breakfast @ 11 a.m. The cook has always been gracious by letting us sneak in one more order. There also was a hell of an old skool playlist that me and the beau thoroughly enjoyed.

Great place to get a breakfast menu. I can hardly wait for the Egg with the Hollandaise sauce, or the Blueberry Pancakes. Soups are awesome. Hambergers also make me smile. Great Coffee and the help is just tops. If you like home cooked food you will not be sorry you stopped in.

If you are looking for a place that has a small town diner feel look no further. This place has a lot of character. The homemade Carmel rolls are amazing. Coffee is complimentary which is a nice touch. Staff is friendly. A great way to start the day.

This place was fine but nothing special. Seating is limited and not recommended for large families or groups.

Good place for breakfast reasonably priced if your not from a small town this is what a traditional small town café looks like for breakfast. Same guys most of the time with the same stories most of the time

Visiting from Winnipeg at Northern Lights Casino. A party of 12 and we just wandered over on the spur of the moment form the Chinese food specials. ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! Possibly the best "Chinese" food I've had in years! AND THE SIZE OF THE PORTIONS????? My goodness! Way more than a single person could eat in 2 sittings LOL. Fabulous service,... More

Three of us had breakfast on September 22, prior to a day of fishing. Two of us had the breakfast sandwich. I had two eggs and a blueberry pancake along with bacon. Very good coffee. Service was friendly and professional. Food was tasty and served hot. Highly recommended for your early morning start

A lot of reviews on this page were about breakfast, and those reviews said that it was good, so I went there for lunch, thinking that it would be a good place altogether. I was very wrong. I am a vegan, so I spent 15 minutes looking for vegan options on the menu. I found absolutely nothing that was not... More

This café came highly recommended as the best breakfast spot in town and we weren't disappointed! I had the special (eggs bennie) and my husband had blueberry pancakes. The portions were more than enough to fill us up for a full day. The staff was courteous and very busy, it's a popular place!
