Had lunch here and loved it. Cozy little place to eat breakfast or lunch. The restaurant is very unique because it is situated in an old railroad car. Owned by a delightful sister and brother, I would highly recommend it to anyone passing through Seward.

This was a tiny, cozy and friendly place that served original food. Everyone in Seward serves seafood, but these guys also have fantastic burritos smothered in green chili.
