“Great local cafe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

FYI: They only take local checks and cash. We have a late breakfast here whenever we find ourselves in Pella. The service is always great. We have always had good food. The cinnamon rolls are homemade and gigantic. We usually opt for an omelet and have never been disappointed.

“It was OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

We had lunch and it was OK. Service was good, but next time we will try someplace else. I had a club sandwich and my guy had a Reuben. I don't think the quality of the meats were as they should have been.

“Awesome Place, Awesome Waitress and great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

I had breakfast and it was around 1115 am, wife had a taco salad. All was great, waitress was quick and professional and the food came quickly. It was a Sunday and not much else around Pella was open. They are only open till 2p and take cash only. ( which I do not mind) The cafe was decorated nicely also. Brunch buffet if you wanted it for $7.95 which is very reasonable. We will surely go back there when we are in the area again.

“Must Have Cash”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

Really glad we brought cash with us because they do not accept credit/debit. Food was really good and the service was friendly. Had the chicken salad on croissant and the french dip. Both were really good, although the fries were a little bland.

“Great For A Large Group”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

We walked in with 8 people on Memorial Day and were seated immediately. For a large group we had excellent service. They were very accommodating on how to split the check. Prices are reasonable!
