Great 'home cooked' food with a large selection. We went back a second time during our Palmer visit because is was so good. Great food, great wait staff, and convenient location. Open 24 hours. A great comfort food place. Ask for Ashley.

We, my wife and I, have eaten in as well as made use of take-out. They also deliver locally. The restaurant is associated with a motel, which surrounds it, and it across the street from the Carr's Grocery Store.

I love the old building but I love the food even more. They offer a good selection of luncheon items that are pleasantly served by an attentive waitress. And, don't forget dessert. Their pie selection is more that large enough to satisfy any craving.

I go here every week for a shrimp salad. It is always fresh and filled with a variety of vegetables finally chopped. Not just shrimp and tomatoes on top of a bed of lettuce here. Their lettuce is mixed with cauliflower, broccoli, boiled eggs, tomatoes, plus more with the shrimp on top. Hamburgers, onion rings, fries, etc. are also good.... More

We came at 1 pm on a Sunday in August. The place was crowded with locals and was recommended to us by a local. We looked non-local, and it took a long, long time for the menus, and then the food, to arrive (an hour, total). But when it came, the food was delicious and reasonably priced.

We wandered in this place on the recommendation from the clerk at the Palmer Information Center for brunch before heading to Anchorage for the day. No one greeted us and the place was dirty. We took a booth with a filthy window. We got a trainee waitress who was good but the trainer was questionable. We got a dose of... More

Big menu and the food is fast. It's a tasty diner with large portions. Better service in the bar than the restaurant, typically.

We arrived late in Anchorage and were driving to Denali Park when we stopped by in Palmer for dinner. The cafe is in a hotel and there is also a small store inside. This place has a big menu with lots of choices. We liked the smaller sized pizzas and salads. The breakfast was also very good. The place was... More

We stopped by for lunch about 2 PM. Wasn't busy but it took a long time for the waitress to bring the menus, a long time for the food to arrive, and a long time waiting for the check. I ordered chicken friend steak with mashed potatoes and mixed veggies but it arrived with fries and green beans. Not very... More
