“Shopping Mall Greasy Spoon Spot”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Lots of fishermen and older couples stop here for the breakfasts. Service can be slow....very slow.....and the food is unremarkable. But it is in a convenient spot so gets regular traffic. There is one in every town.

“nice view of Crystal Lake”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is a fun little spot located right on Crystal Lake... it's owned by the CSA and someone different runs it each year. Nothing fancy, sandwiches, ice cream, etc. Very family friendly, take all the kids.

“Great Place to Stop for a Quick Snack or Meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2008

While in town for a wedding we discovered the Crystal View Cafe and ended up eating there several times. It has a convenient location right on Crystal Lake and offers a variety of simple breakfast and lunch options. Eggs, breakfast sandwiches, and lunch sandwiches are all excellent and the staff couldn't be nicer. Not a fancy place by any stretch but reasonably priced and quaint.
