Not a huge breakfast guy but this place was pretty good. The prices seemed great for the amount of food you get. I believe this place only does breakfast items but I could be wrong. If you're looking for a place to take the family for breakfast this is one of your better bets in the area.

Stopped for lunch. Fairly busy but was seated fast and greeted by waitress right away. Large selection of items on menu. I had a sandwich, salad and ice tea. Taste was as it should be. On another visit I stopped for pie and it was excellent. This is a good place to eat and good for families. Note families. There... More

My large family went to this place for breakfast around 830 on a Saturday. They sat us at their adjacent room where they had tables already lined up. I had steak, eggs, hashbrowns and toast for nine dollars!! And while you cannot expect a great steak for nine dollars the meal was great. It's excellent, cheap breakfast food for the... More

I saw this property listed on Yelp and decided to give it a try. From the moment we got there it was obvious that this is a local favorite. We had to wait about 5 minutes for a table and the line was out the door. The staff was friendly and efficient. It was no time between the previous diners... More

Great value for the money, delicious Western omelette w/ hash browns served with a smile, endless cup of coffee and brisk service. Takes credit cards or cash. Very popular but wait time was 5 minutes. Great breakfast destination downtown Dubuque!

We stopped in for Sunday breakfast while on a road trip. The restaurant was very busy, but we were seated promptly and served quickly. Coffee was decent, and people watching was great. Lots of friendly people, including a few large parties. Our table was near the kitchen and we could hear some noises, and even got a bit wet when... More
