Fun Place, Great Food, Excellent Service!

We stopped for breakfast because we were hungry, not because we planned it. Be forewarned: arrive hungry. The portions are huge, and perfectly prepared. We were seated immediately and service was fast. They also sell locally-made home decor, many around a pet theme. Cute, but not why I would go... read more

Trevor, Thank you for your wonderful review of our cafe. We are really sorry that you made the trip up for breakfast only to find us closed for the season. We realized that some of our online information requires us to be more diligent of changing the information when we are both open and closed for the season. We have... More

The best breakfast we had during our vacation in Door County. Pumpkin pancakes were my favorite. Affordable and generous portions, everything was delicious!

This restaurant sells basic sandwiches which are quite good. Also serves ice cream. Has some antiques and eclectic items for sale as well. If you are traveling to the tip of Door County it's a good place to stop for a slight rest and snack.

The food was hot, delicious and well satisfying to the hungry travelers. I had one of the specials of the day, pumpkin pancakes which were served with... More

My wife and I have been here for 5 days and experienced the top rated breakfast establishments but rate the Rusty Tractor as our favorite. The farm feel and creative menu complete with all farm themed names offered a unique experience. Then the food was so abundant that neither of us could finish the egg scramblers that were topped with... More

Nice selection, big portions and fantastic food here. Staff is very nice and they have a gift shop too. I wish I lived closer so I could go often. Located in a renovated barn outside Egg Harbor.

This is a funky little place with an interesting decor. I wasn't sure what to expect, but everything we ordered was delicious! And reasonable. In Door County, that is a very good combo. Burgers were very tasty, and three other sandwiches were delicious - the combinations of the sandwich toppings are creative and tasty. Will come again when in DC.
