Great food

Breakfast all day, huge pancakes, and excellent french toast. Could use updating but has classic diner feel. Highly recommend.

The biggest, most delicious fruit pies I have ever tasted! Each pie weighs at least 5 pounds. They also have 18-20 inch elephant ears, cookies bigger than my hand, cinnamon rolls that must be 6 inches high, 6 inches wide, and 6 inches across! This is my new favorite stop north of Madison, WI!

We stopped for fuel and accidently discovered a gem. Okay the atmosphere leaves something to be desired but the food does not. Stop here if you want homemade. The bakery is amazing, one breakfast pastry is plenty for two, maybe three people. The food is always good. So forget the atmosphere and pretend you just topped by your favorite aunts... More
