different!!

If you want a funky restaurant, this is it. We had pizza, which was only okay, outside on plastic tables with plastic table cloths. The owner is great, really interesting. I thought she was going to sit down and join us, which would have been fine. The restaurant is open all the time and since we... read more

Allyson's is a most unique restaurant. The owner is also an artist, so you can enjoy a delicious meal and enjoy the art display. Very reasonable prices and everything is homemade. I stop there every time I'm in that area. Easy access off I-5 and WiFi.

We went to Allyson's a few weeks ago when on vacation up in Lakehead. We were highly displeased with the food and atmosphere. We ordered some hot wings to go along with our burger and small pizza, and when they came to our table, they were still cold in the middle! Not only that, but they were obviously frozen from...

Gave this diner an average only because it isn't a four-star restaurant with beautiful views. It is a cute, small, clean, local diner with good food. Servers were friendly and helpful.

A group of us rented a house near here and this was one of just a few places to go. We ordered a few pizza's from them and were pleased with what we got. They had a great variety of toppings to choose from. If you are in the Lakehead area you would do well to grab a bite here.... More

We stopped in for lunch on our 14 hour trip up to Bend, Oregon and so glad we did. The food was excellent and Cheryl the owner makes this cafe a wonderful experience. She is one of the most friendly, genuine people we met on our trip. Loved hearing the story of her adventures in her life and having her... More

We stopped here to catch the Niner game on Thanksgiving Day. The beverages and atmosphere were good. Nice place and low key.

You are traveling from California to Washington and back on I-5 and you think if you eat another McDonald's quarter pounder with cheese you will shrivel up and die. This is the place for you. It's the kind of little cafe you dream of finding with delicious home-cooked food, reasonable prices, a welcoming owner and staff, and no pretensions whatsoever.... More
