Small Town 50's Cafeteria Style

Stopped for lunch with friends. Tables and chairs are 50's style from your grandma's kitchen. Fresh ingredient menu of sandwiches and soups. Limited desserts. Food is good, service is friendly but slow. On a nice old Main Street with fun places to XMAS shop.

This busy little small town lunchroom would be absolutely perfect if it weren't so noisy that its customers have to yell at each other to make themselves heard. The food is varied and fresh, the coffee is wonderful, the service is attentive, and the price is right. If only the management would do something about the noise level!

Very good food with fresh ingredients. Good variety of unique selections. Portions are small to medium for the price, but not too out of line. I go there regularly!

Café 116 offers the best hot sandwiches I have ever had, bar none. I particularly enjoy the Ruben and the Hampden, with potato salad (in lieu of chips) at a dollar more. For dessert, try the triple chocolate bread pudding or the crème brûlée. Their breakfasts are equally tasty. I recommend the egg burrito and/or the waffle with fresh fruit... More

This is a great little coffee shop/restraunt. The food is original and good! The coffee is great! It is kind of retro inside. The staff is all very friendly. I will definitely go back.

Breakfast, lunches, sweets & a variety of coffees & teas; don't miss this popular spot of the locals; when busy it can be noisy. Tables and chairs are from the 50's!! My favorite breakfast item is a breakfast burrito!!

If you don't mind conversations going on around you and the sounds of a kitchen/ coffee bar in the middle of the room, this is the place locals (adults of all ages) like to hang out with friends or alone. The menu isn't huge but it's interesting. A variety of breakfast and lunch options including a few vegetarian selections, and... More

The menu is okay but I don't care for the close quarters. The portions are not large. The manager could be more cordial & greet people instead of looking right through you. He seems to only speak to those he knows.

Quality espresso in Fergus Falls. Well worth the stop by. Check out City Bakery and Viking Cafe around the corner. All great local establishments. Support these great places!
