Great little place for breakfast (I hear they have dinners on the weekends, but I wasn't able to try). The otto mosa was a delicious drink and the cinnamon swirl french toast was fantastic. Love the history of the place and that it was off main street! Definitely a must try!

We loved Otto's dinner so much, we came back a second night. I have never ordered meatloaf on a menu, but it was mouth-watering. The menu is small ( which I prefer) but in the two nights, we tried 4 of the 5 things on the menu and each plate was more delicious than the last. It has such a... More

Even though the menu is limited, everyone enjoyed their meal. It does close at 2:00, so get there early. We had lunch but everyone raves about the breakfast.

Yes pleeeease banana bread french toast. It was too good. Thick and hearty and not overly sweet. Plus, reasonably priced! 2 slices was just enough to be satisfying and not to leave full of as many regrets as calories.

This is one of those rare finds that needs to be savored many times if possible. We loved this place so much we ate here on back to back nights! We have never done that before. It holds 48 lucky diners. Inspired: John Slimp the proprietor - thanks for creating this. Little touches like Christmas Carolers and your name written... More
