We had breakfast every morning while in Joseph. Fresh, local food, loved every meal we had there from Crunch French Toast to the Veggie Scramble. Yummy!

A good old fashioned style breakfast in a family atmosphere. Portions are large and cooked to order from fresh ingredients. Friendly service, but it is not "fast food". Worth waiting if they are busy.

We sat outside on the little garden patio. Food ( particularly French toast) and service was great! This seems to be the place where the locals eat and we can see why.

Its a small, almost hold in the wall, cafe, with a nice patio outside in good weather. The staff were very friendly, the food was very good and the portions huge. Had lunch there one day and breakfast the next, very happily.

We had a brief wait due to indoor seating being busy as it was a rainy day. Their homemade sausage gravy was some of the best I have every tasted (and we even make our own!). Generous portions, reasonable prices and excellent service! We will happily return to this gem the next time we visit Joseph.

Ate breakfast here twice. It fills quickly by about 8AM. I arrived close to opening a little after 7 so had my choice of tables. The patio is a very nice place to enjoy breakfast. The service is very good and the food is excellent. Good coffee too!

Open at 7:30 a.m. Sunday morning for us early risers, and love that they have healthy options (oatmeal, fresh fruit, soy milk) along with the eggs & bacon combos. A popular spot -- every seat was taken by 8:00 a.m. Recommended by the owner of the antique shop/liquor store next door.

We enjoyed breakfast on their outdoor patio area. Our server was very friendly and attentive. They offer two sizes of breakfast entrees. The smaller size is ample unless you are a big eater. The price for what you get is very reasonable. We'll be back again while we are visiting here.

We loved this little place. Ordered the breakfast burrito, ice tea, coffee and a side of eggs for the baby. We shared the burrito because portions are huge. Delicious, fast service for a not so busy Monday morning. We will return on our next visit.

Thank Krisy R

We have eaten here in 2008 and again recently. It is so good that we want to give it a positive review for travelers to this part of Oregon.
