We have been there before a number of times & keep coming back because the food is delicious. Have never had a bad meal. A lot of choices on the menu. Something for everyone. My granddaughter claims they have the "best grilled cheese ever"!! Has really cute decor. Very friendly waitresses!!

Food is good but on the weekends DO NOT come if you have food allergies or any dietary restrictions. Per the waitress they WILL NOT make any changes to the menu options. It took an act of Congress to have no cheese put on my eggs. The waitress stayed they feed 200 people a day and the cook only will... More

My husband and I stopped for breakfast on the way up to the Sister Bay Fall Festival. We had a 10-15-minute wait, which was fine because there are a lot of great items to browse at to pass the time. Our service was great, and the food was excellent. The amount of food was very generous; we both ended up... More

Heard about this place thru Our Wisconsin magazine. What a unique place. Great service! I had the blueberry stuffed french toast yummmmmmm, hubby had the John Deere- huge portion. Filled us up for most of the day. Little gal was selling cupcakes right when you come in-they are delicious.

We have been going here for breakfast for several years. The selection and quality of food and the service are all excellent. It's in an old barn with attendant country decor. I am partial to the Tractor Tire pancakes. They are as big as your head. You can get two or three. I can't imagine anyone eating three. There is... More
