Wonderful cafe/coffee shop atmosphere

The Prairie Cafe & Bakery not only has a wonderful (albeit somewhat limited) menu, but all of the food, whether breakfast, lunch, beverages, or baked items are well prepared and of excellent quality. It's a nice little place to stop that is local and has a great atmosphere.

If you enjoy having a seat snatched out from under you, then this may be the place for you! That is just what happened to us. And if this is what the owners accept in their establishment, then I'm sure business will dwindle. We never even got to try the food. We asked for a refund as the rudeness of... More

The Prairie Cafe and Bakery is open only for breakfast and lunch, but the service is quick and friendly and there are daily specials to augment the varied and tasty regular menu --- and the bakery items are very good. Friends gather there, so the place is usually filled to near capacity by an extended lunch time. The noise level... More

This is a breakfast review. If you want a little more variety than the usual bacon eggs and potatoes, then this is a nice place to go. They do offer bacon and eggs, but also a variety of other breakfast sandwiches and quiches. They offer a variety of coffees. Although it is mostly self serve, they do bring your entrée... More

My wife and I stopped in here earlier today for the first time. I wasn't quite sure what to expect, but it was absolutely delicious. I bought the breakfast wrap burrito (~$8) which came with a couple pieces of fresh fruit. Although it didn't look like a large meal, I was stuffed after it! My wife bought the Quiche Special...

I stopped in for breakfast today and I am glad I did. I had a lemon berry scone that was out of this world and quite large. The yogurt berry parfait was also excellent. I just wish it had a few more slices of banana - there were three. The coffee was quite good as well. The restaurant was very... More

Attracts a great crowd from around the 'hood. Great coffee, excellent ambience. Day-old goodies are fine if you have them nuked.
