Dessert is what's good here. The food itself is average. Service is ok. Can be hit or miss especially when they are busy. Popular with the old folks.

We went to lunch at Dutch Mothers during the Raspberry Festival so had to wait a while for a table but it was worth it. The staff was super friendly. Everyone in our group loved their meal. I had the schnitzel with mushroom sauce which was excellent, the red cabbage side particularly tasty. My wife has a patty melt and... More

We had a great lunch here. Very good food. We each had a half sandwich and cup of soup. The half sandwich would compare to a sandwich and a half at other places. Was reasonably priced. Service of excellent.

OK we're Foodies. Every time I walk into a diner I hope to find a place like this. The kind of place that a spiky haired food guy does a 15 minute TV show about. We said we wanted to try a little of everything. The waitress was great. She suggested a good variety of dishes and served them family... More

My 22 y/o son and I had a late lunch here recently. He's not the most expressive kid and isn't prone to complimenting a meal but he loved his Veal Schnitzel. I had the sausage and cabbage and loved it. Both meals were modestly priced and portion sizes were generous. Overall a really nice place for authentic and tasty food,... More

Favorite place in Lynden for breakfast. Lots of selections - good hearty plates. Great dutch pancakes. The place is not fancy - but it is homey - you won't find a large diner atmosphere - there are a number of different (open) rooms - gives you the feel of a house renovated into a restaurant. Prices are average. Service is... More
