Had a great burger and onion rings! I'll plan my trips to Central Oregon so I can eat here. This is a hidden gem. They use great ingredients and have fun burger choices with real, correctly made shakes.

We got in for a coffee and a applepie. The coffee was good. My wife liked the pi, but mine was not well-done. So we had a different opinion about the pie. The waitress and cook were friendly.

Stopped here during our stay to Crater Lake. There was only one person working - he was the server, cook and cashier, and seemed to be having a bad day. We should have trusted our instincts and left, but there are not many choices in this area, so we stayed. Burgers were OK at best, Chicken Strips disappointing. The hand... More

Good road food at the junction of 138 and 97. Place is old but clean enough. Portions are large, and the cook is accommodating - will do your fries however you like them. My cheeseburger was maybe 1/3 lb., and tasty. the 1/4 lb. hot dog came in a toasted bun, but with no condiments like onions or relish. Mustard... More

Stopped by the Cafe after a several-day fishing trip at Diamond Lake. Enjoyed their special lunch (grilled patty melt on sourdough bread with onions and bacon, and chips). Atmosphere is nothing special, but the meal was good-sized, hot, and tasty at a reasonable price. One individual waited and cooked, so service could be slow when they're busy.

Drove out of our way to eat here on our way to Crater Lake. We were not sorry! I had the Patty Melt and my husband had the Mount something burger. Great! One poor woman was doing everything in the place and it was full so service wasn't super fast, but it was worth the wait!

We stopped in to this establishment because of opportunity; we were hungry, it was there. We left very satisfied!! We both had hamburgers (one with BBQ & bacon, one double cheese burger) and both were outstanding! Very honestly some of the best burgers we've ever eaten! The hand cut their fries. And the portions are very large! We were very... More

This place has good food but it is not health conscious food. I had the club sandwich and it was a filled with all the fixings and it was juicy. For a $1 more, I got a big plate of fries. The problem was there was only one person working when we came in. The tables were not bused and... More

We visited crater lake and stopped here on the way back to portland. Amazingly the owner was working the place alone. Taking and filling all the orders and there were 17 customers!!
