“Taste of HISTORY”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

We were looking for some good breakfast food. The tall "Route 66" sign caught our eye, so we wheeled into the spacious parking lot. We were excited to see the CHICAGO ----> L.A. Rt 66 map spanning the wall, as we entered. WE settled into the comfort of a '50's & 60's booth. Our waitress was immediate to get us coffee, take our specifically desired breakfast, dressed in her Route 66 costume. It was difficult to decide upon what to eat, as the MENU had everything, but the WAFFEL won our vote. Believe me, we loved them, made specifically to our request. Our coffee cups were never void of their great brew. WELL, it's time to get on down the road, but we'll be back to see other displays of HISTORIC Route 66 memorabilia here. The staff was very promt with service & informative of the areas sites to visit. This FAMILY cafe is a MUST STOP, coming & going to the great historical assets of DOWNTOWN Pontiac; especially the ILLINOIS Route 66 Museum.

“Nice road trip lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

Returning from one of our many road trips to southern Illinois to visit family, we decided to look for some place different than our usual fast food places and have a nice wholesome lunch. After checking Trip Advisor, we ended up here and very glad we did. A vast menu of yummy-sounding food and daily specials provide any number of tasty options. We had the fish entree and the hot turkey entree off the senior's menu and were both very pleased. Senior meals include soup (both kinds were delish) and a small dessert for a more than fair price. Add the fact that the service was very prompt and the waitress a real sweetheart, and I am sure we will make this stop again in the future!

“2nd time visitor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

The menu has such a great variety. The portions are large. We all ordered a beef roll, chicken roll, chicken strips, and strawberry crepes. The service was good. It's a nice restaurant and we will be back!

“Great people and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

We eat here frequently because the staff and the service are excellent as well as the food. You get plenty to eat with each selection. They have daily specials and their soups are out of this world. They also have a banquet room for special occasions and have buffets for special holidays. The buffet runs like clockwork.
