If you are looking for a nice little cafe for a good breakfast, this is your place. Their average pricing & homemade food makes for a great visit. We enjoy eating here when in town.

Always creative specials! Delicious food, consistently well prepared! Setting is an old timey diner setting that was started like 60 years ago by one family who only recently sold it to a young couple who have totally transformed it!

Very unique dining experience! Different menu options daily, delicious homemade specials, delectable desserts, and biscuits the size of your face! Breakfast, lunch, or supper... It's all good!

Been here several times and it never disappoints. Service is always great, food is great (usually get the Chili Mac Burger), and leave satisfied. Specials change frequently and are usually worth checking out. Great for all ages and families as well! Glad we have this GEM in our area!

We go every Saturday almost! The food is great, servers are polite, and the atmosphere is nice too. My husband loves the bread pudding waffles, and I love the cajun mac and cheese, and the cheese sticks are awesome too!

My party of 4 stopped by during the week for lunch. It was a homely little place with a western theme (obviously). Two of us had the BLFGT = BL with fried green tomato.

My husband is an expert on fries and he loved their fries. Happy to say we slid in before closing time. They are open from... More

Traveling through the Midwest we stumbled upon Ken's Gold Rush cafe. Ordered the BLFGT sandwich for under $6. The fried green tomatoes were perfectly cooked, the bacon thick and the coffee smooth and good. Nice down to earth folks who take pride in their work. Will return for sure.
