We stopped here after arriving in Galena and before our wandering the streets. I had the pancake which was bigger than my plate! My husband had the country omelet tanned both were good. It was a nice start to our day. Love breakfast for lunch!

We had a great breakfast here. The waitress was so accommodating. She went out of her way to make certain we had everything we asked for. The food was delicious and served quickly. As we were leaving, the waitress asked if we wanted a coffee to go---it was no extra charge. When we visit Galena again, we will stopping at... More

Good food. Great Service. Very reasonably priced. The usual mom and pop cafe food done well. We did see Deep Fried meat loaf, but neither my wife or I was up for trying it. All in all, a nice little diner.

We stopped in for lunch and weren't disappointed. I had the daily special of beef tips & noodles which was very good. My husband got the mushroom & swiss burger which was rather large and he said was very good. The only down side of the meal was the French fries. They tasted like Ore-Ida that weren't quite done. Although,... More

We went for breakfast here. They are known for their cinnamon rolls and we all got one. They didn't disappoint - they were hot and fluffy and had good frosting and came out right away. Overall about $15/person. The rest of the breakfast was not bad, but the service seemed a little slow. Also they struck a pet peeve of... More

Group of 6~~ even though the sign said "seat yourself", we were greeted and seated by a very friendly gentleman. Our waitress arrived and explained the special to us. I ordered a chicken quesadilla. It tasted great and the portions were generous! Our waitress was attentive and made sure we were happy customers. If I'm in the area again, I... More

They serve breakfast all day, so my husband was able to order pancakes for lunch. I ordered the egg salad sandwich and cup of soup special which was delicious. Our server was excellent. I highly recommend for breakfast or lunch.

This place was very old-school, café-style. Personalized service....you could tell many of the patrons were regulars! Our food was good, and the service was good as well. Didn't seem sparkling clean, but I'm pretty picky when it comes to that.
