Stop by here for a late breakfast on our way up to Leavenworth. It's a very popular place with the locals I think as most of them knew each other and all the waitstaff. Everyone was very friendly and accommodating. Service was right on the money, and the food was just as good. Food came out quickly and hot. Our... More

We deliberately leave home early so we can stop here for breakfast or lunch. We love the old-fashioned menu and the friendly service. Highly recommended.

Twice! Yep, we enjoyed our lunch so much one day that two days later on our return we stopped in once more. It was obvious to us both times this is a popular place with locals. It was busy both times and from the looks of the cars in the parking lot most of the clientele were from nearby. I... More

We had breakfast. The servers were enjoyable and pleasant. The portions just right, and accommodating. She heated the milk and a pad of butter, and the jam was the REAL McCoy, with the freezer jam packets

Good parking. Near truck stop and across from a hotel. Otherwise, I was not impressed with the food, atmosphere, or service. One lady was waiting on the entire cafe - running her legs off - so service was not her fault. The menu was typical of Truck Stop Food. It was loud. Nothing special and I would not recommend to...

Breakfast is always great, but lunch and dinner are good as well and you can get food late at night! Sometimes it might be busy and have to wait to get in, but once sitting down, you don't have to wait long for the food! The kitchen is very organized! They bake fresh cinnamon rolls that are huge and you... More
