Stopped here while at the Iola Old Car Show. We had been wanting to go here. I was taken back by the outdated atmosphere. The only crystal we saw was the dust covered crystal chandelier hanging in the middle of the counter area. Overall the place needs a little cleaning and brightening up in our eyes. The food came out... More

Stopped here on the way to the Car Show. Friendly staff, good food, and clean. This is a good old Mom and Pop restaurant. Would eat here again.

We are breakfast fanatics and just happened to stop in. What a surprise we had!!! This had to be one of the best breakfasts we've ever had. The homemade bread was great especially with the homemade berry jelly on top. We were in the area the next day too so guess where we had breakfast! This place is the best.... More

Everything was ala carte so it added up very quickly. Food was average at best and would definitely skip the salad. It was a chunk of lettuce covered in ranch. Not impressed and won't be back.

PtDF... That's the Motto.. Great breakfast. Tonight, we took motorcycle to Iola for a fish fry. Wanted to try Tipsy Steer, but my wife had never been to CC. Fish fry was great, unbelievably thick homemade rye bread, potato soup, and we split Rhubarb Pie AlaMode. They close early (7:00), so don't wait. Incredible value and you'll need a nap... More

Always enjoy finding the true Mom and Pop Restaurants. We had a great breakfast and our server was friendly and quick. Very efficient. I had the Biscuits & Gravy with scrambled eggs on top. Biscuits & Gravy can be a gamble because not everybody does it right. Well they know what they are doing here and it was awesome. Lot's... More

EXCELLENT FOOD! Enjoyed every morsel and I'm coming back tomorrow. Atmosphere was homelike and the food tasted like Gramma's.

Have had many meals here over the years. The food is always good, the service is always prompt and friendly. Just a nice Lil cafe with very reasonable prices. A must when you are in the area.

My wife and I have stopped here before and it as before is a great little restaurant to stop at for a light lunch this way you can make room for a little desert and like their sign says "Pie to Die for", they are not kidding. If you want home made pie warmed with a little ice cream You... More
