You will NOT be disappointed! Among the best pancakes ever & I love the old diner feel, friendly staff. Can't wait to next time.

Fabulous breakfast, wonderful hospitality. You will not get a better breakfast. Home Alone house is a 5 minute walk. Too bad I can't bring this cafe back with me to Ireland. Keep up the great work. Philip.

Need a great breakfast or lunch spot, this is it. Top notch food. Best buttermilk pancakes I've ever had! They have this grilled cheese and spinach sandwich that's crazy good. It's a small neighborhood cafe.

We went there for breakfast-as it was a favorite of my daughter's. Extensive breakfast menu with a Texmex flavor. The usual breakfast fare, but also many specials with chili, peppers and Mexican cheeses. The seating is very limited but that also adds to the small town atmosphere.

A little bit of a squeeze but the food is excellent and there is a very wide choice. Café attracts people from all walks of life - so not just the chattering Northshore set.

Unique menu chalk board with a great variety of food options. From Pumpkin bread french toast, chorizo quesadilla, omelettes, hamburgers, soup and much more. Our food was really good. Everyone at my table loved their lunch! This cafe is very small, personable and beautifully decorated. It is cash only.

Thank MizzRae
