Bring a jacket.

Well it didn't send us running as we entered, but the place was cold. Easily under 55*F inside. Considerably warmer than the 9*F outside, but definitely not warm enough to remove ones jacket. The place was barren when we arrived, decided to come here since Maggie's was closed. The gentleman who... read more

Judging from other reviews, lots of people are not happy with this place, but we had breakfast here twice and both times it was good, average food. I did like the fact that they had a juicer and both mornings had a kale & carrot drink with a veggie omelet. My husband had typical bacon, eggs and toast combo and... More

I had the eggs benedict. It was very good as was the coffee. A great way to start the day as I headed out onto the Highway 550 south.....

Other than the waitress (who we know was trying her best given the circumstances) this cafe was simply terrible. It started when a tall young man, dressed in filthy cloths, came into the cafe dressed in filthy cloths. He proceeded to the kitchen where he made a meal for himself, sat down among the few diners ate and left. We... More

Walking along the main street in the evening, we didn't want burger, steak, pizza etc so choices in town rather limited. Menu in window looked good, a bit surprised to just see one other couple in there. However, once we had taken our seats the reason was obvious. No alcohol licence, and when I asked for spaghetti they didn't have... More

Good food, waitress really worked the whole room. Philly cheese steak sandwich was phenom! Only drawback was the flies coming in and trying to get us to share with them!!

Overpriced, poor quality food, extremely slow and unfriendly service. Don't do it. Haven't had a meal this poor in a long time and it was not worth the prices.

We ate here for dinner because all the other places in town were full. This was the only place that wasnt. We soon figured out why. The ( one & only) waitress was very friendly, it was her first day on the job so she had to keep running to the owner with every menu question we asked (like, does... More

The food was o.k. and server we had was quite nice. It wasn't very busy and seemed a little lax, but we had a fine experience and decent food.

I stayed at the Columbus hotel which is above the Silver Nugget for 5 days over the July 4 weekend. Because the breakfast was included with the room I ate at the silver nugget each day. I found the staff very pleasant but overworked. The food was good but nothing special.
