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

That is why we chose the Rooster Cafe. Atmosphere was is the norm is small towns I. The area. My mother and I ordered individual pasties while my husband... More

Known for its Cornish food options, we gave the cafe a try. We had their pasty and while the crust was yummy, the filling was overcooked.

My husband and I decided to try this place because we heard that we had to try their "Figgy Hobbin." We ordered and our soda came in cans (we would have preferred it if they had a soda fountain, but that isn't a deal breaker). We got dinner buns with our meal that had been thrown into little individual baggies... More

During a weekend get away to Mineral Point we became curious aout this local specialty. Being from Chicago and admitted "foodies" we were amused that we hadn't seen pasties in the city. I am glad we chose the Red Rooster Cafe as the place for our culinary adventure. It is a charming cafe and our pasties were quite tasty. They... More

Small town diner feel. Serve breakfast all day, which I love. We tried their specialties: the pasty and figgyhobbin. Both were delicious. I personally recommend the individual pasty, as opposed to the pan style.
