Great comfort food! Staff is friendly and it is clean. LOVE their pie!! One draw back is that it is a small restaurant - and can be COLD in the winter!

This little restaurant is one of our favorite places to eat when visiting family. The restaurant is very small yet comfortable and clean. My favorite item on the menus is the hot roast beef blue plate (served with mashed potatoes and green beans). The portions are very large and the prices are very affordable. The pies are excellent for dessert... More

I enjoy their cavatelli at night, but my favorite is their breakfast. Huge pancakes were amazing. Wife got omelet which she thought was good. Will be back!

Good food, cozy interior space. The one thing you wouldn't expect from a diner is that there is a drive thru. Good variety on both breakfast and lunch menus. Great BLT.

Lousy food and lousy service. The worse is the new one in Waukee in which I and another couple walked out of since we got no service at all.

I have only had breakfast here, but it is excellent. Eggs benedict and French toast for my table were good. Good service, fresh hot coffee kept coming.

Description
Great selection for everyone..open 7 days a week,all day long.All homemade food right down to the breakfast, lunch, and dinner items. Cozy mess for breakfast, tenderloin or chicken salad for lunch, cavatelli specials galore for dinner, or try their feta salmon salad with a citrus vinaigrette.Top it off with a special coffee from grounds for celebration that they specialize in and even a cappuccino smoothie. Take my advice and try it all, you won't be disappointed. i promise:-)
