Favorite of Locals for Breakfast!

A great place for breakfast and a favorite of the locals for many years. The kitchen provides excellent presentations of all its menu choices. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. It is always on our list when we are in Hayden Lake.

Went out running errands early SPECIFICALLY to stop here for the first time on our way to town. I've heard a lot about it. First of all, yes, it was very busy. Not enough room for more than a few to wait for a table and it's soooooooooo close to people who are eating. They are watching you eat and... More

Great breakfast, crowed get there early. Very large portions, home cooking at it's finest. If you are looking for a hipster type cafe this isn't for you. Just down home food, the real thing.

You can't go wrong here, everything is good. Best advice I can give is to get there early, because they fill up fast!

I love the price. Of the food I eat at least once a month at this place. The French toast is ausum. One drawback. No hashbrowns. I have had lunch once. It was ok but the breakfast is the strong point you get a very good portion a great price and tasty.

Just happened across this place when looking for breakfast. What a great treat of just the good old fashion cafe with great basic breakfast options. Just wish we had room to try the home made pies...next time.

This is our favorite place, hands down for breakfast! If you go on the weekends it is a very good possibility you will wait. It is first come first serve! If you order the chicken fried steak, be hungry! It comes on it's own plate and their standard omelets are 3 eggs. My husbands favorite though, is the bisquits and... More

This is the place "where they remember your name" We eat here several times a week and feel like it is home. There are lots or regulars but "visitors" are always present and welcome. The menu is basic; the food quality is absolutely tops. Soups are a specialty not to be passed by. I love cheeseburgers and have tasted none... More
