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.

Home made biscuits, muffins and Wesh pasties! What's not to like? Well I have to admit that the pasties are not quite empanadas, I did have the opportunity to refresh my tastebud memory. Friendly, down home service, standard diner menu done well with Welsh originals make this a dependable breakfast/lunch experience on our repeated visits to Mineral Point. Limited tables,... More

We went here because of the pasties, which my wife and I both had. I'm sure the way they make the pasties here is more of the traditional way, which is still good, but kind of bland compared to the way they are made in the UP of Michigan were they are served with lots of gravy and spiced. My... More

We went with friends for lunch. Two of us had pasties - mine was an individual one and my friend had one out of a pie. The other two of us had reubens. This was my first pasty. I was surprised that it came with chili sauce. I guess that this is traditional, at least in WI. Mine was good.... More

If you are in downtown Mineral Point and the Japanese restaurant has a line out the door, check this place out! We got right in and didn't have to wait a minute. They serve New Glarus beer in the bottle and the decor is cute and old school. I'm not a pasty expert, but this one was good. My boyfriend... More

This will be a mixed review. While visiting Crazy Frank's flea market we asked about a good spot for lunch. We were told to try the Red Rooster. When we walked in I thought the food must be good here as they haven't spent any time in the last 50 years fixing this place up. Not that the place was... More

I went to this restaurant just for the Cornish pasty, a specialty of theirs. It was just OK. I've had better. The place is cute though. It's in an old 1800's bank building. The decorating is cute and the service good. Maybe something else would be find. I'm not from the area, so won't be back.

I was visiting Pendarvis in Mineral Point and heard about the how the Pasty was a traditional food for the miners. After the tour we stopped at the Red Rooster and order a pasty. I was really let down. It was dry, and chile sauce didn't help it. The crust was bland and I guess the whole thing was Blah.... More
