Went there after doing laundry on our rv trip. Saw that they were closing in 15 minutes. Warmly greeted and told not to worry as they would be there cleaning. Ordered our food. Burgers were very good. Bun was extremely good, not the usual sesame seed one.

Very good food, large portion and fair price. Service is fast and friendly, small café so you may have to wait but worth it. Homemade jelly and jams, and some of the best FRESH ice tea I've had in long while, and the glass was kept full!

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.

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.

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.
