Entered the restaurant at about 11:15 that was sparsely attended and it took 10 minutes to get a menu. We both ordered the Garden Omelette which took an extra long time to get with the veggies over cooked and some burned. Not a good meal...More

Downtown Owatonna holds this quaint little Eatery. Old fashion breakfast, like the 50's style. Great prices too. The kids LOVE to eat here, so different to enjoy. Hot pork and beef sandwiches to die for! Fun owners...go visit and enjoy!

Were here at about 11:30 on a Sunday morning and we both ordered steak and eggs. For the price we paid it was a perfectly good meal and I would recommend this restaurant. Friendly help and a small-town atmosphere.

$25 will go as far here as anywhere. While I am unsure about whether they sell gift cards or certificates, I would sure bet they do and I would just call the restaurant directly. Phone: (507) 451-9991
