Upon arrival just seat yourself at an open table as a visitor. You will notice locals by themselves tend to head for the area breakfast bar to converse as a nice small town feel. We wanted to compare oatmeal dishes from 3 local restaurants for a "healthy" option on a breakfast out and Cable Cafe came out #1 without question.... More

They have a sign in the restaurant that reads "This is not fast food, be patient". It is not fast, but is well worth the wait. We camped near by and went there each morning for breakfast and were never disappointed. Homemade jelly served with the toast!

My husband and I stayed in Cable, WI for Mother's Day weekend and, having never been there before, thought to try the Cable Cafe for one of our breakfast choices. I read reviews on Trip Advisor and must say, I agree that this tiny, hometown cafe serves some wonderful, homemade meals. I tried the breakfast special on Saturday which was... More

Loved meeting Bob and Shirley and thoroughly enjoyed the food and service at the Cable Cafe! Bob shared wonderful stores about local wildlife and the community, and Shirley turned out awesome breakfasts for our family!

As we explore the options for local fare, this is one that is not only reasonably priced, but it is definitely home made. The wait staff are pleasant and the restaurant is, although small, made to feel cozy and welcoming. Sometimes I wish it were open for dinner since the summer months bring your only real meal to be after... More

This restaurant is perfect for what it is. enormous portions, really good, like grandma's cooking. They decorate for the season or holiday. the jams are homemade. One can order exactly what one wants without hurumpf from server or cook. Service is always very good. I love the Cable Cafe. Open for breakfast and lunch only. I try to go there... More

I had breakfast for the first time at this location. I have a cabin in the area but had yet to enjoy breakfast at this location I ordered the country fried steak with eggs and gravy and was blown away. Not only was the steak delicious, but the portion sizes were enormous. The coffee was hot and the service was... More

We ate breakfast here while on vacation with our twin toddlers. It is cute and small and it seemed like there were regular customers at the counter chatting. The server was helpful and attentive, getting us booster seats and even toddler forks. They had toys for the boys as we waited for our food, which was hot, fresh, and tasty.... More
