The rib eye steak was cut from their own cattle herd. The pies are home made. The staff is attentive. Just like home but you don't have to cook.

Had breakfast here one morning while in town for a dog show. I had 2 eggs, sausage, biscuits, hash browns and a coffee. I think the bill was like $8.00 or a little more. A bit expensive for breakfast I thought. The food in itself was ok, the sausage was home made (I think) and was OK. The service could... More

This is a small town cafe that's been around for years. The place is clean and the food is almost as good as mom's. We would not hesitate to recommend this place to out best friends.

The perfect mom-n-pop diner with the perfect breakfast. This place was PACKED on a Sunday morning, and now I know why. It's amazing how many different places I've eaten breakfast at that can mess up bacon & scrambled eggs. This place does 'em right, and according to my wife, the sausage & gravy is top notch, too. A "can't miss"... More

I stop here frequently for breakfast with my family when I'm home. The food is always awesome. St. Clair is a tinnnny town, people come from miles around to eat here for a reason. Prices are reasonable. I would give it a 5 but they allow smoking which I do not appreciate. The food is still worth the risk.

I didn't notice whether there were any calendars hanging up, but according to William Least Heat Moon's rating system in Blue Highways, this should be at least a four-calendar cafe. If you're looking for a traditional, small-town, home-cooking restaurant, look no further if you're in the area. If you want slick, plastic chain fare, go elsewhere. We sat in one... More

My husband constantly bragged about this restaurant. I finally made him take me with some others. The food was fantastic!! I have had better service but I can't complain about it. I look forward to the next visit!
