“Go early for good pie...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

This is a nice cafe with good food and service. The prices are low and the portions are not. There's usually a good selection of pies available during lunch so be sure to go early or order your pie when ordering your meal.

“The way restaurants USED to be!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

If you're ever driving through Fort Madison, IA and want to grab a plain old home cooked meal..this is your spot! They are only open for breakfast and lunch and you won't find them advertising for business..because frankly..they don't need to. The place is always packed! (Yes, they take reservations!) If you like tenderloin sandwiches, theirs are fantastic..and BIG! They come in two sizes, but the smaller of the two is more than some people can eat. I personally love their chicken strips. Oh, and don't forget dessert! Homemade pies..yum! It's not big..and it's not fancy..but the Cottage Cafe is great!
