We were in town for a wedding and stopped for breakfast. This place is so cute and quaint. It's a mom and pop looking shop. We had the egg, ham, guards and tomato on pretzel bagel with a side of honey mustard and it was AMAZING! The service was great and the staff was very friendly. I would definitely stop... More

While in Waseca, I ate lunch here twice (it's only open for breakfast and lunch). Both times the sandwiches were excellent. The atmosphere is interesting and relaxed. The restaurant is filled with old tables and chairs and memorabilia. All for sale.

Always a good experience going there. great service, selection and food is always hot and tasty. the staff makes you feel right at home. Nice to have Rick and Renea visit with the customers when they can. Nice local gem. They always have the basics plus something a little different.

I've ate at Out to Lunch before with my family, and we had a brunch for Mother's Day. The food was amazing, so fresh, so healthy, so good-for-you. We all loved it! Recently, my school that I work at had Out to Lunch cater for us. We wanted a very healthy menu, so the owners suggested a choice between Chicken... More

My husband and I went there this morning. Service was ok, but did not get money 's worth for the meal received. A measly little scone with an egg and some cheese sauce on it for $7 and the coffee was awful. Could have had more on the plate for the price that was paid. We were not impressed and... More

Very great place to enjoy breakfast/brunch. Food is excellent and made to order in a timely matter. Many coffee drinks to choose from as well. Lots of fun decor around to look at. Would recommend for sure.

Out to Lunch, or OTL as the locals call it, is a very cozy little restauraunt. It's nothing fancy--just a laid back place with excellent food. I know Rick and Renee (the owners) personally and they are great people. The food is pretty basic. For instance, I bought a veggie wrap there today and it is deeelicious. It cost $6.12,... More

This is a nice place that is only open for breakfast and lunch. It is easy to miss if you are not from the area. They have a great coffee bar. The friendly couple who own it are there every day. The building was once a fast food restaurant, but the inside atmosphere is nice and cozy. The restaurant is... More
