Small portions on main "dish" but huge amount on desert. Would recommend. Extremely nice staff. Food was well made and presentation was what you would expect from a country style cafe. It was actually busy with locals, so you know they know what they are doing. I almost wonder if they only had enough for 1dish and since my wife... More

Pretty good place. We have now eaten breakfast, lunch and dinner here and we have been satisfied each time. We will return again. Better than driving to Traverse City for a meal.

Pricy food, but best in the area. They have recently updated inside, now more contemporary. The menu has expanded and has a little of something for everyone.

We're stuck in the area due to rain (motorcycle trip). Hubs just wanted a pizza but I wanted real food. I had cheddar ale soup and 1/2 french dip and hubs had french dip fries and coleslaw. Everything was delicious. Will definitely be back hopefully not in the rain next time.

It took 1.5 hours from the time we were seated until we received out food. There was a breakfast Buffett that we should have eaten instead of individual ordering. The Buffett looked good.

We live in the area and eat at this restaurant at different times of the day. The food is always good and the servers are as good as they get! They also do a great job catering for special occasions.

Cozy little diner that has a good menu and now has alcohol to go with it. Breakfast is always reliantly good and the portions are large. Great staff that serves you quickly. If your in Kalkaska this is the place to go.

Grumpy with hunger, we pulled into the Trout Town Cafe, just off the main drag in downtown Kalkaska. Although the building is showing its age, the menu was a complete surprise. Most items made from scratch. The slow roasted corned beef was melt in your mouth delicious. The fish dishes are excellent. The waitresses were busy serving opening day deer... More

This restaurant is a good addition to Kalkaska. We have been travelling to the area for over 50 years. The soups were hearty and healthy. The slaw was good. The fish dishes we had, all 6 were delicious and cooked just right. Service was good.

We stopped in for breakfast. I had the sausage and biscuits, and the wife had the trout. Both were excellent. Not crowded at all, with just a few locals there. We are looking forward to stopping in again if our travels take us that way.
