“Bill's Cafe - Where Locals Eat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Bill's is a nice cafe located on the main drag in downtown Blue Jay. The cafe is located on the southside of the street in front of the CVS pharmacy shopping center and near the Royal Oaks restaurant.

Bill's is good for breakfast, lunch and dinners and is well known to the lake residents and skiers. Food is well prepared, cost to value of your dining experience is good and the staff is friendly and helpful. You can't go wrong here.

“Good Food for a good price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

If you like comfort food, this is the place for you! Great breakfast with large portions. Lunch offers a great hamburger and my favorite Alex's wrap. Dinner offers great comfort food selections as well. We go often.

“Cool old place...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

The menu says it's been there since 1960 - and you definitely get that vibe. I mean that in a good way. I get so tired of chain places, and I really like to go to one-of-a-kind places like this. Food was tasty and very plentiful (I couldn't finish breakfast). Nothing fancy here - just good ol' American food...

“Bills Coffee Shop, like you remember them”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Good food, pleasant staff, coffee shop décor.
Breakfast, lunch or dinner is ample and well done. Terrific salad bar and the coffee just keeps coming. If you are looking for fancy this is not it, but, the cooking is terrific, and it is a charming, old fashioned coffee shop. Booths, tables and of course a counter, take your choice.
Wait staff is friendly, helpful and if you go enough...everyone will know your name.

“Nostalgia, good food, fair prices, nice folks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Reminds me so much of small town diners almost everywhere. Just what the weekends needed: an unpretentious place to eat, and enjoy a lazy morning.
