Good small-town diner

Good diner breakfast, nice folks, funny rooster decor. They had apple-bread French today this morning, and it was very good.

Went here for breakfast while passing through town. Service was slow and food was bad. I ordered a side of hash browns and they were rancid! I would not recommend eating here.

My brother and I visited this welcoming cafe twice for breakfast during our brief stay in the area. We loved the ambiance, the friendly staff and patrons - and the food was very good! This place is kind of a throw-back to an earlier time, and we appreciated the staff's hospitality. I had the eggs benedict, and was glad that... More

We were touring Mineral Point and wanted something to eat, we came across the Red Rooster and thought it looked authentic instead of some chain restaurant. We each ordered the individual pasty, which was a good portion and delicious. It also comes with a side and a dinner roll. After our meal we tried the Figgy Hobbin, not knowing what... More

We stopped in here just for Figgy Hobbin. A dessert featuring raisins, nuts. brown sugar in a flaky crust topped with some carmel sauce. Delicious! Rich and wonderful. We shared one and it was plenty.

Ordered pasties to go. I think they were frozen. The chunks of potato and meat were very large compared to other pasties I have had, over 1 inch in size. We prepared them as instructed but they turned out very dry. I wouldn't order it again. On the bright side, the place was clean, pasty affordable, and the waitress friendly.... More

Having breakfast at the Red Rooster is like coming home to your local diner. Their food is always plentiful and delicious. Wonderful Cornish pasties and the figgy pudding is something you should try. Their prices, thank goodness, are very reasonable.

Good homemade food. Looks like where all the locals go. Would go there again when I'm back in town. We stopped in for a mid-afternoon snack and then went back for breakfast Good service from a pleasant and friendly staff.
