Super Good

We had breakfast here one morning during our visit to the area. I ordered the quiche and was pleasantly surprise at how good it was. Could have been prepared by a top chef and for all I know it was.

A nice time on the patio with family eating delicious food. My daughter & I shared the tri-tip blue cheese salad. Wonderful & plenty for 2. The steak was tender and spiced perfect! My sister had the tuna, once again very delicious!! There was only 1 waitress on a Friday lunch and she was very busy but handled it well.... More

Stopped in and had the French Dip. It was good. No frills: none expected. Service was quick and friendly. The breakfast menu looked pretty good. If I wasn't staying at a B&B I'd come back tomorrow.

This is a very small restaurant with delicious food. We would definitely eat here again when in the area. The wait lady was friendly and we enjoyed dining here.

This has to be one of the best breakfast places I have ever visited while on a trip / vacation. Service was perfect and food was exceptional. This is a small town, homey type eatery. Come as you are and enjoy the atmosphere. The only negative I can give is that it's not that big so you better get a... More

Ate breakfast here twice while hiking in the Wallowas. Good was savory and delicious. Service a bit confused but would eat here everyday. Prices more than fair.

Clean, great small-town atmosphere. It has been a while since I have been there. (Not on my last trip to Joseph in January 2015). But I remember having a very good veggie omelet that was like homemade. Twice I have been here and have forgotten that they don't take debit or credit cards only cash or checks. So, I had... More

This small café serves breakfast and lunch. It is charming, with racks on the wall in each booth holding menus and reading glasses. They offer breakfast dishes, sandwiches, soups and salads--no greasy hamburgers here. My husband had a generous portion of sausage gravy and biscuits and I had a sausage, bean and kale soup. Both were very good and I... More

A tiny little restaurant with a great breakfast and excellent coffee. Has a cozy atmosphere on a rainy day. I had the veggie scramble which was very tasty. I liked that you could get half portions too- which was plenty. Innovative menu options too, with a Southwest/Mexican twist - nice touch. I was traveling solo and they were happy to... More

My wife and I were staying in a cabin at Wallowa Lake, and stopped in town for some breakfast. Great find with a great breakfast! I had the french toast, which was delish! My wife had the biscuits and gravy with a side of ham. The rosemary in the gravy was a tad overpowering but still very good. Oh, and... More
