Great selection for everyone..open 7 days a week,all day long.All homemade food right down to the breakfast, lunch, and dinner items. Cozy mess for breakfast, tenderloin or chicken salad for lunch, cavatelli specials galore for dinner, or try their feta salmon salad with a citrus vinaigrette.Top it off with a special coffee from grounds for celebration that they specialize in and even a cappuccino smoothie. Take my advice and try it all, you won't be disappointed. i promise:-)

My wife and I tried the cavatelli twice when it first opened but it was the worst tasting junk that we ever tasted. My wife couldn't even finish hers. I used to make cavatelli from scratch at an Italian restaurant when I was a kid. They make theirs with wagon wheel noodles from a box. I made the yellow noodles... More

Lousy food and lousy service. The worse is the new one in Waukee in which I and another couple walked out of since we got no service at all.

I have only had breakfast here, but it is excellent. Eggs benedict and French toast for my table were good. Good service, fresh hot coffee kept coming.

Old school dinner type setting located in Johnston just off the Interstate by several stores and hotels. The menu was basic comfort food( burgers chicken,blue plate specials n a big breakfast menu.) It holds maybe 60-70 customers so in a rush time seating could be an issue. We went at an off time and were the only 1's in the... More

My wife and I frequent this location often. We live close by and really enjoy the food and the staff. We primarily eat their breakfasts. Good portions and good value. Their homemade pancakes are excellent. I enjoy the omelettes, scrambles, biscuits and gravy, as well as the hasbrowns and marble rye toast. The lunches are good and quick and they... More

The service and food was very good, but I ordered some onion rings with my sandwich and either the waitress didn't tell the cook or the cook forgot. We did get them eventually.

First time went it was pretty good. The 2nd time the cavatelli was horribly indescribably foul and the onion rings were cooked in funky oil that was long overdue to be changed. We wont go back Scary food safety practices suspected..
