Went to ghost town not really a ghost town but the story was interesting. Ate at the cafe and the sandwiches were good. A guy at the store told me to have the meatloaf sandwich. It was excellent. They close at 1pm.

Breakfast is my favorite meal and Ghost Town Cafe does it incredibly well from the sausage gravy to home fries and the ability to create your own meal. Tyra and her crew are incredibly friendly and helpful with lots of info about the area. Hang around and the local and visiting musicians will put on an improptu concert. Definitely a... More

This place has a terrific breakfast (the loaded omelet is excellent), but having to wait an hour for the food to come out -- and then wait another five minutes for my wife's food to come out (after mine) l --- is a big negative.
