Love this place!!

Always crowded and delivers! Everything freshly made and delicious! Great home cooked menu. I had amazing chicken and dumpling soup and will return soon! Fresh bakery items and pies look amazing - next time!

I've stopped here for breakfast,dinner or just a delicious dessert. No time have i ever been disappointed in the Pine Cone. It may be a truck stop but I recommend giving this place a try.

This is our favorite place to go. Breakfast, lunch, or super. They serve great rolls with the super menu and love them. Soups are great.

We stopped and picked up 2 cinnamon rolls on Christmas morning to take to the grandkids. What a terrible disappointment. They were huge but very pricey and the kicker was they were so tough we couldn't even eat them. Now how you can make a cinnamon roll so tough you cannot bite into it amazes me. I definitely will not... More

We had a great affordable breakfast here! The chicken fried steak was great! The bakery was also fantastic. I would definitely eat there again!

We stopped in here for a meal....the food was all homemade, totally incredible! The desserts were out of this world! Great service, don't be fooled by the exterior.

Excellent home made everything. Could put some tomatoes on side salad, but dressing and croutons were great. Delicious sandwiches and bakery items looked amazing. Service and prices were great! Definitely a find driving through off interstate.

Plenty of menu choices and fresh bakery. Good values as well as a senior menu. Open 24/7. Breakfast all day and they leave a coffee pot at your table. It's a truck stop, diner, bakery, convenience store, grandma's kitchen all in one. I like the chicken dinner ( monster dinner role comes on it's own plate) and the single eggs... More

If you like desserts, this place is for you. If you love desserts, you should put them on speed dial! Large size portions of cinnamon rolls, donuts, cookies, cream puffs, etc. They don't disappoint when it comes to the selection. My favorite is the persian donuts, but you have to get them early in the day because they're sold out... More

The biggest, most delicious fruit pies I have ever tasted! Each pie weighs at least 5 pounds. They also have 18-20 inch elephant ears, cookies bigger than my hand, cinnamon rolls that must be 6 inches high, 6 inches wide, and 6 inches across! This is my new favorite stop north of Madison, WI!
