Been getting breakfast here since 1983. Best breakfast in town. Great downtown environment. Great service. Get one of the the omelettes.

They must be good if they were not seat inside, so we sat outside. Our waitress put two tables together since there were 7 of us. Service was great and the food came out quickly. We all enjoyed our breakfast and the portions are large. I would come back.

Wonderful hearty breakfast with fast , friendly service for party of 8 mid-morning. Usually a brunching challenge but this cafe got it right. Sat down right away-- kids taken care of with gigantic cinnamon roll as well as all the usual breakfast grub. Great biscuits and gravy! Tasty harvester omelette.

I search out cafes when I am traveling. I love the hometowney atmosphere, the regulars, the thin coffee (although here it was more substantial), and the traditional menus. They had buttermilk pancakes that sounded good, but I stuck with my usual eggs, toast and bacon. We enjoyed eating at the Western...reasonable and comfortable, fast and friendly.

The Western Cafe is an old time experience. The atmosphere is small town USA. Try one of their cinnamon rolls for breakfast. They are big enough to fill a plate. Don't forget the extra butter!

Just a solid good breakfast at a great price. Always smiling faces to greet and serve you. This is a must visit as far as I am concerned.

This place is worth the 5 min queue. We were made to feel very welcome and served immediately. Our breakfast was a huge serving and absolutely delicious. If we were locals, we would come all of the time. Thoroughly recommended!

Visited on a very busy Saturday morning with a friend. We both loved our food but found it hard to visit. Overall, we would definitely recommend this place and look forward to visiting again.

First off, it was very busy, which I can understand but still what they did was unacceptable. My moms taco wrap/salad thing was impossible to get thru with a STEAK KNIFE. My brothers burgers were charred and I had to give my food away so they could have a decent-ish meal. I had ordered a cheeseburger and u had gotten... More
