When you walk in this restaurant you are bombarded with articles and honorable mentions that this restaurant has had over the years.. the key word here is HAD. Whatever they had in the past is sadly lost now. We had a simple breakfast eggs over medium and a vegetable scramble. It's hard to mess up eggs and they did.. the... More

Our second visit to this very eclectic cafe right on the main drag in Mineral Point. The first time we tried the pasties, and this time just stopped in for warm Figgy Hobbin--oh, sooo good!

One of the main reasons to come to Mineral Point is to experience some of the Cornish culture that still exists. That means trying some authentic Cornish food. Traditional Cornish Pasties (meat and potato in a pastry shell) and Figgy Hobbin (dough filled with raisins (figs) served with whipped cream and caramel sauce.

We had breakfast here everyday that we were here. Always good, hot and quick service. Friendly staff and clean place. We would return for breakfast.

A very charming old fashioned small town diner with good food. The Cornish Pasty is very good and is what they are famous for but other items are good too. Prices as reasonable and service is very friendly.

Heard about the pasty and burgers but bypassed the cafe for dinner at MP Dining. We had breakfast at the red rooster instead. Great old time diner atmosphere. The waitress was very nice but the food was ok in terms of quality and small in terms of portions. My husband ordered the homemade cinnamon roll which was dry. I ordered... More

Classic early morning breakfast, with locals sitting at the counter. Everyone was pleasant, friendly, and the eggs benedict was just what we needed. Great iced tea!

Heard the pasty was great. Left after a tasteless meal. The pasty had no flavor, the bread served with the meal was moldy. I will probably not return. I would question their health standards. Very embarrassed that I brought guests with me. Service was good, but should've comped my meal after telling her about the moldy bread.

...not so much for the food, which is OK, but for the old-time feel of the place. There are regulars at the counter and at the tables, everyone seems to know one another and everyone is friendly. The standard breakfast fare was good, though we did not have the "pastie", which is what the place is knownfor.

Cute diner with a rooster motif. We came for breakfast before leaving to see the House on the Rock (about a 40 min. ride, I believe). I had the quiche which was a little runny, maybe undercooked. My allergy with eggs kicks up big time if they are loose & phlegmy. Yep, close to it. So, needless to say, picked... More
