Great breakfast and super low prices. The locals eat here !! You may have to wait a couple of minutes, but it is worth the wait.

My husband and I walked to the Ala Cart both mornings we stayed in Port Clinton. Absolutely delicious food - especially the grilled cinnamon bun! Friendly wait staff, super clean, and mostly all locals the days we were there - which is always a great recommendation!!

good food and service. If you go away hungry it will be your own fault. Home made pastries, yum. It is just a little place so be prepared for an intimate dinning experience.

We were in town on vacation and were looking for a place for lunch. There were 8 of us in our group. We were waited on right away and got our food quickly. Good sandwiches and large servings. I got a patty melt and it was very good. Fried bologna sandwich was good with HUGE slice of bologna . Friendly... More

Great home cooked breakfast. Affordable prices. The menu board looked they have a good selection for lunches also. Not fancy by any means but clean and comfortable.

This place has great service and great food. Year after year we go back and whether we eat breakfast there, or order breakfast sandwiches to go, they are always perfect. It must be a good place to work, too because I see the same servers there year after year!! Don't miss this GEM when you visit Port Clinton.

I had a burger and 1/4 order of the home fries (from where I come the home fries would be called fried potatoes--they are wonderfully delicious). Believe me, 1/4 order is PLENTY for one person, it really could be shared depending on a person's appetite. I think everyone else in my family ordered breakfast items. We were all very satisfied...

Great food, fast and friendly service! Do not miss this place--it's one of the oldest restaurants in the area. It's a very "no-frills" kind of breakfast and lunch place, but you won't be disappointed by the food: it's all handmade and locally sourced. Just make sure to get there in time: opens at 4:30am and closes at 1:00pm.

The specialty of this diner is their fried bologna sandwiches but we do not like bologna so my husband had the perch sandwich and I had biscuits/bacon and home fries. My husband also had a cup of chili. He said the perch sandwich and chili were good. The bacon was done perfectly and the home fries were good, not great... More
