Good Breakfast

The portions are hearty and the people are nice. If you don't like hamburger gravy don't get the biscuits and gravy. Really like their food though.

We wanted to have breakfast there a couple of months ago. All I wanted to order was a side of hashbrowns with onions and chedder. The waitress told me they couldn't do that ( I am not kidding), because they already had a bunch of hashbrowns on the grill and didn't have enough room to put a "special order" on... More

Old carpet, no substitutions allowed, No Gluten Free items. Stuck in the past. Very basic food no real flavor. The waitress was nice but when I asked if I could substitute something since they didn't offer gluten free toast I was told no substitutions allowed.

This place is like the cafes you see on TV and in movies. A friendly place, with great food and bottomless coffee cups. I had the sourdough pancakes. They were huge, light and fluffy.

so disappointed. so many good reviews. food was extremely bland and portions were small... totally not what you would expect from a small town mom and pop joint. wait staff was very friendly. there are not many options in Prineville for breakfast, so i guess that is why everyone loves this place.

Straight forward honest breakfast options. Not high end eats, but my son cleared his plate. The place is filled with locals which says something.

What a great place. Fantastic breakfast, set us up for the day. Great, friendly service. Open only for breakfast and lunch, I had the feeling it is a real "locals" place, but also welcoming to strangers like us as well.

Popular with locals, this is a pleasant little restaurant with friendly waitstaff. The food is very average, but is typical of the area.

Nice local place with great food and good portions. The pancakes are worth getting as well as the omelets.We had a variety of things and we liked it all. Biggest thing is don't be in hurry. It takes a while to get your food but it's worth the wait. I don't think anything is pre-made or packaged. We've been traveling... More
