Homey and a reminder of growing up in Iowa when places like this were everywhere. A wide variety of diner foods on the menu and great specials. I had the chicken salad on sourdough and my friend had scalloped ham and potatoes. The cowboy beans were a meal unto themselves. The meringue on the coconut pie was sky high! Definitely... More

How this little gem of a Kafe has remained a secret is unreal! This little gem is just off Hwy 63 and in a very nondescript building. I think they do that intentionally because they do not want word to get out how good their food is! We went for lunch at 11. The parking lot was almost full. It... More

Get anything you can't go wrong. My all-time favorite. Old fashioned Ham overeasy with white toast. Can't beat it. Always generous portion of hash browns.

Excellent comfort food Iowa style. Great prices and large portions. The walleye was fabulous as well as the hot beef sandwich. Friendly staff and plenty of seating. Oh and don't forget to save room for the homemade pies!!! Wonderful stop even if it was by accident:)

Good service. Plenty of room. Very accommodating with request for add ons/subtractions to menu items. Typical breakfast foods. Not gonna find eggs benedict here. Haven't been here for dinner. Might give it a try.

Cinnamon roll to die for. One of my favorites is the Taco Salad always so good and the bowl is very tasty. My husband enjoys the Chef... More

This restaurant is the type of place that you have to know about or you would probably never see it and stop as it is somewhat off the beaten path. It is located in a very rural town in northeast Iowa and the customers appear to be mostly local which says something good about the place. The food is excellent... More
