Its on my list to stop and have a meal every time I get to Baraboo. Home made pies, delicous milk shakes made the old fashioned way and served in a tall stainless, shiny vessel. Soups were like nothing I ever had before, full of veggies, noodles and barly with thick broth. Garden fresh salad with ryr bread croutons MMmmm... More

Right downtown Baraboo and open until approx. 3pm (?) on Saturdays. We had never been but EVERYTHING ordered at the group table was delicious! Great service and neat historical feel to the restaurant. We will definitely be stopping in again the next time we are in the area.

This is one of those gems from the past that used to dot the USA from coast to coast. Its well worth a side trip from the highway to get great home style cooked food. I know that when I'm in the area again I will.

This vintage cafe has a great cafe menu; food was terrific--turkey club and reuben sandwiches. Desserts looked homemade, but we were stuffed. Portions are more than ample.

This is a real nice local restaurant. I have been coming here off and on for 30 years, and seem to appreciate this place more each time. Friendly service, very good food, nice pleasant atmosphere, and good location right downtown Baraboo. The bisquits and gravy are some of the best I have ever had... plentiful, spicy, and tasty.

I have been going to Jen's for breakfast off and on for years. I love her biscuits and gravy combo platter. Always really good! Service speed depends on what is going on. Most dishes are from scratch, not a can, so things can take a little longer.

Had a opportunity to have breakfast here recently. Unbelievable food & good service. Place was packed with the after church crowd I'm guessing because it was 11:00 am on a Sunday morning. Need to get back for lunch one of these days soon!

Thank Don J
