If you like good beef dinners with home made gravy and pies from a real hometown cafe - then this is the place. Just be sure to order extra GRAVY and extra HOT and tell'em the two guys from Minneapolis said so - the ones that visit Mille Lacs Casino once a month.

We agree, Jan was a 'hoot'! We had stopped a day earlier, when we had to stop for prescription across street, at the drug store... Asked a retiree sitting on the bench out side the store, where was a good place to eat. He pointed across the street to the Cedarwood. He was right! Had patty melt 1st day; broasted... More

I've eaten at Cedarwood several times passing through Onamia. It's very casual, fairly busy, with a distinct "homey" atmosphere. Inexpensive with fairly good food. The men's rest room is awful, though.

Enjoyed our breakfast and had good service from our waitress. This was my first visit but my wife had been here before and she was the person suggesting our stop. Good choice.

Great food and service, stopped on way home from up north. Enjoyed an home cooked meal. My husband got the hot roast beef sandwich. It reminded him of his childhood😋 topped our meal off with d dessert strawberry rhubarb pie! Yum

The food was not what I'd expect from a small town cafe.. very good and much of it seemed scratch cooking. Best of all was the excellent service. I'd retirn again in a heartbeat.

Warm, friendly restaurant with excellent food. Hot beef sandwich and swedish meatballs were perfect and the homemade pie with fresh whipped cream was the best. Our server was wonderful and made excellent suggestions for us.

Thank jflentje
