The Little Rooster Cafe is adorable. Filled with that cozy farmhouse kitsch, decent service and tasty food, my family and I were pleased with the overall experience.
This cafe does NOT take reservations, so we were happy to catch a small lull in the lunch service as we pulled into the parking lot with a car full of hungry adults and children. We were a bit disappointed to find that they were no longer serving breakfast and wouldn't bend the rules and make my youngest an egg despite the fact that we arrived on the cusp of breakfast and lunch service. The menu was small, but there were so many options that appealed to us that it was hard to choose. I ordered the sandwich with the cheese, apples, ham, I believe it was called the Ethan Allen, and it truly made my mouth happy after a long drive. It was not overly large, the meat to cheese to fruit to bread ratio was pleasing. My husband was happy with his Thanksgiving-like meal on a turkey sandwich. My youngest had one of the specials that contained prosciutto, fresh mozzarella, artichoke hearts, and a pesto aoli in a panini, which was delicious. My middle son had a grilled cheese sandwich with bacon. This sandwich was slightly disappointing as the cheddar cheese didn't taste like much and there was barely any cheese or bacon. My oldest son ordered a steak sandwich, which arrived with thick pieces of steak in it. The sandwich was not pleasing to look at and the steak was a bit cumbersome for the bread, but it had a decent flavor. The service was about what you'd expect for a busy little cafe. The waitress had a rather brusque manner and informed us that "we only take cash" when we walked in the door, but other than that it was a nice experience and we enjoyed the food. To wit, I shall say bring CASH a they do not take credit cards.
