This corner cafe is wonderful atmosphere with a historical local flair. The genuine welcome was refreshing from all the canned how are you greetings you typically hear. The prices were astoundingly reasonable. The fruit cup overflowed with fresh fruit for $2.29. The coffee cup was bottomless. It was almost mind reading skills of the waitress to know when we were...

We were there for breakfast and there was no wait yet it was busy. You get a sense of small town hospitality there. Will definitely eat there again the next time we are in... More

What a quaint restaurant in the heart of downtown Seward Nebraska. Delicious food and a superb staff! I was impressed with how well my server knew the menu and could answer my questions about several of my choices. The menu has something to offer everyone's taste with plenty of "comfort food" favorites. Good food and service with great value! This... More

Good home cooking. Cafe is very small so get there early for lunch or dinner. Service is usually very good. Wonderful desserts.

A small, tidy cafe with a customary menu. It wasn't crowded when 7 of us were there for an evening meal, so it was comfortable and quiet. The food was well prepared and good, however nothing stood out as above average. We did miss not being able to have a beer or wine with our meal. Still, we would go... More

One of my favorite cafes. Love the exposed brick and decor. We shared a club sandwich that was very good. Great service as always.

Went for a lunch on a Sunday. The place with bustling with activity! We ordered lunch, however, people were still ordering breakfast and they were out of many items. Chicken fried steak was all right. Served with mashed potatoes with skins still on and corn that was grilled. Good attentive servers. Was worth the 10 minutes that we had to... More
