“Great little cafe!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

Great place for breakfast! We have been here several times and the service has always been great and the food delicious, quick, and affordable. I had the Tripleberry French Toast and it was awesome! We will return on our next trip to Stillwater!

“A Breakfast Staple in Stillwater”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

If you're looking for a traditional eggs and bacon type of breakfast, but want to break free from the Perkins experience....this is your place. A throwback to how a cafe used to run, with vinyl booths, busy waitstaff and a no-nonsence cup of coffee. The prices are very reasonable and no one hurries you to pay the bill, so feel free to spread the Sunday paper out and stay for a while. Just don't forget to bring cash, as credit cards are not accepted. A twenty dollar bill should cover two of you easily, including tip.

“Tried it twice”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013 via mobile

We have passed by here many times so finally had breakfast a couple times. Service was very good the second time. Food was good enough that I would go back sometime. Next visit will try lunch. Clean and pretty good.

“All the comfort of home!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Just cannot say enough good about the food here. Just like Grandma's house! Good home town atmosphere and excellent homemade food. What more could you want in a small river town?

“Great place to eat breakfast.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

Good place to eat breakfast. Although the prices can be a little steep, the food and locale are great. Never had a bad meal there. Worth the drive from out of town to have a good breakfast in a neat small town.
