Great sandwich!

A casual, walkup, order, be seated type place. Sandwiches and breakfast fare was great. Personnel are helpful, and professional. located in area of resort where there are other eateries as well as shoppes.

The food was average and so was the service...not what we expected for this resort. The food was on the expensive side.

We had a quick breakfast here. It has table outside where you can enjoy the view. It's a place to get quick and lighter food. Price isn't too bad.

We visited Truman 2 mornings for a late breakfast during our stay at Big Cedar. Both times we had a nice breakfast and coffee. There is not a lot of seating but it wasn't a major problem on either of our visits.

Beautiful outdoor dining on the river. Food was very good. Took a little while to get food but setting was beautiful and we were on vacation, so no hurry. Would definitely recommend if you're on vacation and near big cedar resort.

Breakfast is served until 11:00am, (it was 11:15am) , so we settled for a sandwich. They are made as your order them and the variety is good. The soups are clam chowder and three bean (had sample of each). Both were tasty. You could eat outside (weather permitting ) with the beautiful view of the lake or inside. Our meal... More

all the foods at Big Cedar are delish......we had done the Devils Pool buffet Friday wanted something light, stopped at Truman Deli.....we usually do room service as we are packing to leave. Friends with us, we wanted to show them all BC has to offer. Willard and Bob ordered the bagel and ham.....wow! The foods were all tasty, served hot... More

It was a good sandwich, and coffee, we did not try the desserts, but looked really good, the service was good. The shuttle to and from was an added bonus.
