Everything about this diner is fairly ordinary but is a welcome change to chain restaurants. The cafe has a down-home feel, cooks breakfast like Mom would, and the staff are friendly. Our original host was not the best server (maybe she was new?) but the replacement server was very conscientious of what we needed, kept the coffee flowing, and was... More

We had blueberry pancakes and eggs and hashbrowns. All was good. Service was good. Atmosphere is a little run down. Nothing charming about the decor.

The building might not look like much, but the food speaks for itself. It is made in-house and reminds of something my grandmother might have made. They serve the best bacon I have ever had, and sell it to take out the door at their cost. They also serve fun seasonal dishes like pickled herring and lefse at Christmas. All... More

Nothing good I can say about this experience. Service was almost non existent, waited way too long for our food considering the place was empty (cook seemed to be on break?). Food was undercooked and greasy....and no apologies for any of it when we complained.

I go into the Stanwood Cafe very often and it's always great! The service is always friendly. Your coffee cup is always full, and that's important to me being a retired waitress. If you live here or just visiting you should try it. It has a real Home Town feel. Try it out!

Se decided to give the Cafe a try for breakfast. It was a mistake. I ordered my favorite, eggs benedict. The hashbrowns were lukewarm and the egg whites were as runny as the yolks. Our watiress dropped our plates and we saw her again when she dropped our bill. On a better note, two ladies were having lunch behind us... More

Diner style food, great both times I visited. They do close early so check their hours before you plan your visit. Must be near a dairy because the restaurant really had the smell of cow poop( which I actually liked, given where I was...). Excellent specials and my companions really really liked it too... Great prices, yummy food.

If you're looking for that new modern spotless chain restaurant, then this place is not for you. The restaurant is in an old building and is more of a local hangout in the older part of town. This is the local favorite and I love this place. The food is standard menu stuff but is fabulous. The waitresses are the... More

We like the hominest and the good honest food. The prices are very fair. They could probably update the booths. They are broken down and uncomfortable. Other than that, we love it.
