Right downtown Baraboo and open until approx. 3pm (?) on Saturdays. We had never been but EVERYTHING ordered at the group table was delicious! Great service and neat historical feel to the restaurant. We will definitely be stopping in again the next time we are in the area.

This is one of those gems from the past that used to dot the USA from coast to coast. Its well worth a side trip from the highway to get great home style cooked food. I know that when I'm in the area again I will.

This vintage cafe has a great cafe menu; food was terrific--turkey club and reuben sandwiches. Desserts looked homemade, but we were stuffed. Portions are more than ample.

This is a real nice local restaurant. I have been coming here off and on for 30 years, and seem to appreciate this place more each time. Friendly service, very good food, nice pleasant atmosphere, and good location right downtown Baraboo. The bisquits and gravy are some of the best I have ever had... plentiful, spicy, and tasty.
