We had 2 recommendations from friends for breakfast: The Shack and Winona’s across Lincoln Street. (The “main drag” through town) . Winona’s is a bakery and claims the best cinnamon rolls around. We are avoiding sugar so we went to The Shack. Very tasty food,...More

My husband says it's the best omelet he has ever eaten! We went 2 days in a row. Down home cooking with very friendly staff! Will go back.

The food was fine although they were out of the first two things I tried to order. Service was efficient; not overly friendly but not rude. Everything was ok. We ate. We left.

Service unfriendly, food, toast and bacon, sent back, it was cold and they didn't butter. Second time around, not any better. Should have stopped at gas station, would have been better.
