“Great Food, Great Prices!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2012

We go here often for lunch and are never disappointed. We love the hometown family diner atmosphere and friendly banter with Jodi ...a most excellent server at Leystra's who makes sure that no one leaves unless they are happy and full! The Friday fish is excellent and daily specials come with home made bread. Desserts are also superb...everything from home made pies to huge sundaes and real old fashioned malts.

“Small town cafe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2012

Fairly typical of a small town cafe. Good service, friendly people and good food. We generally eat here at least once a month, either noontime breakfast on a weekend or a quick weeknight dinner when we don't feel like cooking or doing anything fancy.

I don't recall ever having a bad meal here, whether it's one of the specials, a BLT, omlets, french toast, etc., although I have to admin that my favorite is the seasonal crock of chili complete with onions, cheese and sour cream. It's only disappointing when summer comes and I can't get anymore of the chili.

A good selection of old pictures from town so one can see a lot that has changed.

“Good Family Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2011

This is a true family restaurant with meals like open faced beef sandwich. Sliced beef piled on white bread with mashed potatoes and gravy. Nice little salad and canned beans. Not healthy, but comfortable.

I like the Thursday lasagna, not Italian mostly thick meaty sauce, but filling and good value. They always have great pies.

The location is really in Sauk City about 15 miles from Baraboo, WI.
