Service was fine. Lunch was fine, nothing spectacular as I can’t remember exactly what we ordered. A family at the table next to us ordered pancakes which were huge. Lots of history on the walls. Pictures, children’s school art, etc.

We stopped here for a late lunch on our way ‘up north’ going fishing. Splendid little one room schoolhouse turned into cafe/ice cream/pastry shop. Highly recommend the ‘Dagwood’ - if you have a large appetite!!

We had a great meal this morning here. The ladies who worked there were so very sweet. The homemade sweet rye bread totally lived up to the hype! This meal was reasonably priced, made with heart and eaten up by our six kiddos!!!

We don’t like pretentious food. These people made basic down home meals. He had the Swedish Meatball Special and loved it. I had a burger and could tell from the first bite that it was made fresh. Wish we could take them home with us!

Not only is the food better than good, the friendly small-town service is refreshing. The coffee served is a good smooth brew also. We have eaten here a number of times thru the years and have never been disappointed.

We drive through McGregor at least once a year on the way to our vacation spot, and right past this diamond. After seeing it on a website a few months back we decided it looked like the kind of small town out-of-the-way place we love...More

Very small inside, but the food was fantastic. Stopped in on a work trip and had the philly, highly recommend. Also the cook cake out to see how I liked it, very good service.
