Love small towns. Each one has unique and special diners and cafes to kill some time. Found Cafe 116 online looking for "coffee near me" as I hit downtown Fergus Falls. Sat down in chairs circa 1960s with the metallic spines and plush vinyl back rest and seat cushion. Tables straight out of 1970s. Lots of room. Free wifi. Great... More

Food, service and ambiance were flawless. Truly nice people serving wholesome, approachable food with a local twist. Connected to a lovely little boutique grocery/gift shop, and next door to a grocery store and a fresh fruit stand. We ate outside with our well behaved dog, and he was treated to a piece of bacon and a pitcher of water. Will... More

Stopped in for lunch. The service was great. Had the reuben sandwich with chips which was good, but could have used some thousand island dressing. The fresh squeezed lemonade was very good.

I LOVE this Cafe!!! Great food, great staff who are very friendly. Fun place to eat at. They have good breakfasts and lunches. They don't serve dinner. They close at 4pm. They have green tea which I LOVE. The Staff usually knows what I'm going to order as I eat a lot of the same foods.

We enjoyed the bread pudding and the coffee cake. The chai was wonderful but the coffee was mediocre. Good service with down scale formica style decor. Adjoins a great gift shop.

A few years ago I ate here and enjoyed the sandwich and coffee. This time the crust of the bread was hard as a rock and I couldn't chew it. The coffee was so strong, I couldn't drink it. The waitress barely looked at me, didn't smile, didn't return to ask how my sandwich was or if I wanted more... More

Stopped for lunch with friends. Tables and chairs are 50's style from your grandma's kitchen. Fresh ingredient menu of sandwiches and soups. Limited desserts. Food is good, service is friendly but slow. On a nice old Main Street with fun places to XMAS shop.

This busy little small town lunchroom would be absolutely perfect if it weren't so noisy that its customers have to yell at each other to make themselves heard. The food is varied and fresh, the coffee is wonderful, the service is attentive, and the price is right. If only the management would do something about the noise level!

Very good food with fresh ingredients. Good variety of unique selections. Portions are small to medium for the price, but not too out of line. I go there regularly!

Café 116 offers the best hot sandwiches I have ever had, bar none. I particularly enjoy the Ruben and the Hampden, with potato salad (in lieu of chips) at a dollar more. For dessert, try the triple chocolate bread pudding or the crème brûlée. Their breakfasts are equally tasty. I recommend the egg burrito and/or the waffle with fresh fruit... More
