My husband and I are travelers and just love trying local food while doing so. This place is a real gem! Definitely one we'll remember and return to. It's true that the atmosphere is dated, but we found it so very charming! Like stepping back...More

Nice small town place to eat with very nice staff. Nothing fancy. Older place with "plain Jane" setting and tables, but still very nice. Good food and very good wait staff. Been here before and will stop back...

The food is pretty good and the cafe was within walking distance from our hotel. I should have ordered the 1/4lb instead of the 1/2lb. The shake was to die for - REAL ICE CREAM!

We were traveling through Marquette around the lunch hour, so I checked Trip Advisor for a place to eat. With all the rave reviews for the chicken & dumpling soup, we thought we found a winner. Huge disappointment! Left with an empty feeling and stopped...More

It's friendly, accommodating, local character, fair price, abundant servings, efficient and friendly server, a hidden treasure at the foot of the Mississippi River bridge. I have brought my photo students here for 20 years. A gem, truly.
