Very cute, small patio seating, soft music, great food and even better coffee! We had the breakfast bagel and it was so delicious.

The food is very good, but the location is even better. Probably not worth a 20 mile trip from Branson, but if you are at Big Cedar, you are missing something if you don't have breakfast at Truman Coffee.

This place obviously has coffee & pastries as you might imagine but is also open for lunch and dinner. Some of the sandwiches are great and they even have things for dessert or a healthy smoothie during the day. The best thing about it is it's located right by everything else on the Big Cedar Lodge's grounds. I would definitely... More

If the owner of Bass Pro Shop opened a coffee shop...this is what it would be. Because, that is exactly what this place is. The 1920's era stone cabin is now Truman's Coffee & Café. The patio is breathtaking. The breakfast items are just right...Oh, and the coffee is good too! When you stay at Big Cedar, this place will... More

We get there by water because we stay on the other side of the lake. The grounds are nice and the cafe has good food as well as customer service. There is outdoor seating overlooking the lake. It's a relaxing atmosphere. Only thing I would change is the annoying music they play. Smoothies and sandwiches are delish!!!

This is how a cute little coffee & cafe shop should be! It was, well, CUTE! The atmosphere was nice. It was an early morning and a little drizzle falling. We had their breakfast burrito and some yummy coffee.

The view is spectacular there and the building was especially decorated within a time when Truman was living. It was turned into a restaurant and offered food that is traditional with a step up. Awesome food and service

Truman Coffee & Cafe is located in what I would call the center of the campus. The main registration, The Shoppe and this cafe create a center hub area that the rest of the resort revolves around. It's a beautiful little white cottage with a shake-shingle roof and a white picket fence around the front. Gorgeous plants, flowers and trees... More
