The food was okay, the soup was actually very good, but the place is so run down looking that it was hard to notice. Medora really needs some casual places for lighter fare so if they could upgrade the place it could be a great choice in a town that doesn't have many choices.

This was a good place to have breakfast. Overall, the food was very good, the service was very good, the prices are so-so. That's the problem with anything in Medora. It's the only place for miles and miles and it's there for the National Park. Everything in Medora is overpriced. If you're looking for a good breakfast, and okay with... More

We are on our fourth trip out west on this route from NY State and each time have stopped here for dinner. The Reuben sandwiches are outstanding, hot beef sandwich is great and chicken fried steak is superb. The real reason to stop by, however, is the great homemade pies. We make it a special stop just for the raisin... More

Down home café, with great service and quick good breakfast. We were in Medora for 4 days, and ate breakfast here every morning. Very friendly help, good food and they gave us a coupon for free coffee every morning.

If you just want a good cup of coffee, eggs, bacon and toast for breakfast, this is your place. Staff is very efficient at getting you in and out. Prices are reasonable. We ate there both mornings before sightseeing. They also have a pretty good lunch menu.
