In McFarland for sporting event and drove over to this place for the trout LT. Ordered and paid with credit card. I make it a point to tip in cash; when I indicated 'no tip' on the charge the young woman server made a point...of it, saying in a fairly loud voice; 'and NO TIP!". She was a little apologetic when I pointed out I tip in cash. By the way, the sandwich was excellent; 5 stars for that, 1 star for service.More

Amazing! No complaints. Quaint and amazingly fresh and creative menu. Not a huge menu but plenty of variety. Can’t wait to return!

Everything there is good but what I don’t like is when they serve the food they have very specific times for when it’s breakfast to lunch and if you want breakfast one minutes after the cut off they just won’t serve it to you.

Came here due to all the great reviews.... was surprised to see that you ordered at counter and had food delivered to table. Was expecting more of a B&B type inn.... but it's an OLD OLD house with a cafe in it on the first...floor. All the food was fresh... and tasty... but our party ordered two of the egg breakfast sandwich.... which came SANDWICH only on a large plate... it was enough food ... but no garnish, no anything on this big plate... which just made you feel that something was missing... add an orange slice or a piece of ANYTHING... make it look more appetizing! I personally had the $9 egg bacon/sausage scramble plate that came with a small salad... plate was nicely presented... but 1 slice of toast... (cut in half).... even in Denny's for 1/2 the price you get 2 slices of toast..... Again.. enough food.. but the little things for a $9 dish make me NOT want to ever come back.More

I Love this place.. The fact that you can go in drop you money in a box and make your coffee is great. Saves so much time. Especially in the morning. The chicken Panini is great at lunchtime.. My kids love the Chocolate Shop ice...cream.. You can’t go wrong here. Do yourself a favor and stop by..More

We loved the cozy atmosphere and the great food. The Summer Spinach salad was delicious. I’ve also had the Smoked trout salad which is excellent ! This was one of the first homes in McFarland, Wi so I like the historical significance too. They also...make very good coffee drinks and have an ice cream bar.More

We hosted a very intimate and special going away party for a dear family friend/Care Giver last month at the McFarland House. Every aspect of the experience was perfect! The flexibility, the willingness to work with us on special menu options and the customer service...during the event was excellent. Having the room for the kids made it so nice. The food was delicious and the homey, cozy atmosphere made for a very special event. We hosted it on a Sunday evening. I highly recommend that people consider using this venue for any special event, family gathering, etc. We can't say enough good things about the venue, staff, food and service!!! Very unique and special.More

Got 2 ice coffees and 2 breakfast sandwiches. Decent prices, not super expensive. Service was prompt. Does have little seating area, well heated in winter, has a kids corner. Food came out within 5 minutes. No complaints, will go back.
