The Dairyland cafe is an awesome place for breakfast , lunch and dinner. The owner is great and will treat you like a member of the family. Come here for great food at a fair price, you won't leave hungry.

This is just your local breakfast place with food options under $10. The service is good. It is family friendly and they have ample parking (however, current construction on Cottage Grove Rd makes their entry harder to navigate). Not terribly fresh looking here - - the carpet looks like it hasn't been cleaned in months. Anyway, I had the ham... More

The first thing that jumped out to me when looking at the menu were the prices. This has to be one of the most reasonably priced diners I have been to in quite some time. I ordered an omelette, hash browns, and bacon. It was all very good and the omelette was loaded with the toppings and good sized. The... More

My wife and I have lived in this neighborhood for 7 years but had never eaten here. This restaurant is reminiscent of the restaurants my family ate at in the 50s and 60s. It has a large menu for breakfast , lunch and dinner. We stopped by on a Tuesday evening and the restaurant was full but not crowded. I... More

This is a home style kind of place. Think grandma's house for Sunday dinner. I frequent this place for breakfast about once a month. The prices are good and the portions are huge. The decor is hopelessly in need of a major facelift and I'd recommend avoiding the restrooms. The staff is very friendly and there is never a wait.... More

Great home style cooking. If you have had a long day and don't feel like cooking but want the home made feel, this is the place. Nothing fancy, just good food and great service. Well worth the stop. Very easily accessible on Cottage Grove Rd.

We live near this place and thought we'd give it a try on a Sunday evening. First of all, it was not very clean. I ordered the meat loaf and my Wife got a cheeseburger. I got mystery meat covered in a gravy-like substance and warmish and hard mashed potatoes. It was nasty. When my wife ordered her cheeseburger she... More

The Dairyland Family Restaurant is a traditional neighborhood diner. This is not four star dining, but is decent food that will fill you up at a great value. For $10- $15 you can have a dinner that includes soup, salad, and entrée. The senior menu includes all that plus dessert. The chicken rice soup was thick and satisfying. The fried... More

The people who work here are very nice but the food is not good. I felt sick for 2 days after eating here. Everyone else I was with thought the quality was very bad.

Home made food, clean, very reasonably priced, special senior menu (even includes desert). The staff was awesome, the food is great. This place should be on Diners Drive ins and Dives. The only down side is it is a little out of the way.
