We were on our way home from and few days away and stopped here for lunch. They serve the best pasties I ever had. They offer it two different ways, either from a cassarole pan or and individualy baked serving. I got the individual serving option so it comes like a meat and potatoe and ruddabaga pie in a crust.... More

Great little diner/family restaurant. Basic menu items along with Cornish specialties like pasties and figgyhobbin. Conveniently located in downtown business district.

We were in Mineral Point today to do some shopping and check out the town. My daughter saw they had pasties and wanted one for lunch. They have been serving pasties since 1972 or 1973. They had a pasty on the kids menu - which was perfect for her (half a pasty), my other daughter had a hamburger, it looked... More

We had the traditional pasty and a figgyhobbin dessert. The pasty was fine although I was thinking the pastry portion of the pasty would be flakier and not soggy. The figgyhobbin was all dough with a scant amount of filling (perhaps 15 raisins). It was disappointing considering the price. The wait staff was friendly but not overly so. I like... More

Enjoyed a great early morning breakfast with good conversation with the locals. I had the apple bread French toast which was very good. My husband had traditional eggs over easy and American fries.

Had a decent lunch with my husband. I chose the tuna salad sandwich. It was a bit skimpy on the tuna. Coffee could have been hotter. Service was fine.

Nice Americana main-street-cafe (though it's on High Street). Old-school decor, friendly staff, generous portions. Your coffee cup won't drop to half without a refill, and when they say their Eggs Benedict is "smothered" in Hollandaise, they're not kidding! The historic section of Mineral Point is - in general - a little tired, but this little team is giving it their... More

We were back visiting Mineral Point and always look forward to stopping in at the Red Rooster for lunch. They make their pasties fresh every morning, and as always, were delicious. Crust was so tender. For dessert, my husband had the Figgyhobbin and I had the bread pudding...and they were both outstanding! A friendly, down home restaurant with very pleasant,... More

The Red Rooster gets a lot of press for their traditional Cornish food, which my husband and I did not try. We went for breakfast, and it was just okay, though the service was great and the place was clean enough.

Mineral Point was a Welsh mining settlement. The Cornish Pasty was their preferred luncheon selection. The Red Rooster is continuing that tradition, by providing delicious Cornish Pasties as well as other regular American breakfast and luncheon fare. We have been stopping here for years, and have never been disappointed. The friendly and helpful wait staff is another bonus. Mineral Point... More
