Minden Downtown Good Place

The service is fast, efficient and welcoming. The food is better than everything around there. I love downtown Minden, any time of the year. Im lucky if I can go to the Village Chalet restaurant, if its open when i need it. Its good and cheap, including the interior. On street parking is easy, no... read more

Recently, my Mother-in-law and I had the occasion to be shopping in down town Minden. Woohoo!! Anyway, after admiring the fall decorations along the main street and doing a little shopping, we decided it was time for a bite. We chose this restaurant because it looked 'comfortable'. I think we should have walked on a little more. We were greeted... More

We went for an early Saturday morning breakfast at this local diner. Food was as expected, generous servings of typical diner fare - well prepared and the eggs were surprisingly large, not the more commonly found extra small. We both had the basic eggs, meat, potatoes, and toast. What insured our return was the atmosphere and service. Although quite busy... More

Had turkey dinner-special. Tasted the same as home cooking. Was superb. Good selection of vegetables, lots of turkey and trimmings. The pumpkin pie was to die for! Highly recommend this place for food and the very friendly, efficient service! <3

Food was good. They forgot the chicken on my club but didn't charge me. In the morning my eggs were cooked hard when I asked for them overeasy. Wasn't my weekend for eating out I guess.

I have gone to Village Chalet over the years,and have enjoyed all phases of 3 meals.Waitresses are friendly,you do get great portions,and the atmosphere for Family Resturant is great. You can wine and dine in a dining room with a fireplace,and have privacy.I recommend this eating establishment,special nightly specials are reasonable priced and you never go away hungry. Ike N

I used to come here years ago for lunch and it was great. Now. Service is not good. Food was not very good. Got a burger, came with no condiments and fries took extra time. Sad to see, but this place has gone down hill. Also, never go for breakfast Sunday. Unless you have 2 hours for eggs..

Got up late and found this restaurant in town, advertising ALL DAY BREAKFAST. Good. We went in and decided on the breakfast with 3 peameal bacon, hashbrowns. Also got coffee. As the title said, the peameal was so thin it could have passed for shaved deli meat. I've never had paper thin peameal. And 3 of the tiniest slices. This... More
