This was a wonderful find. We happened to be there for pizza night, and one of my boys does not eat cheese. No problem! The manager made sure the order was exactly as he wanted with a pizza without the cheese (which was delicious, btw,...their special blend). I've not seen such customer service in a long time.More

We stayed in Gustavus for 5 nights and this was our favorite place to eat. Homemade soup was the best. Hamburgers, pizza, it was all good. Highly recommend.

We went here twice for meals while in Gustavus. Our first visit we ordered their pesto chicken salad and a crispy chicken bacon wrap. The salad was excellent with grilled chicken covered in pesto and the wrap was delicious with curly fries. Our second visit...was on a Friday and we ordered pizza that was also excellent. The place was packed on Friday so the service was understandably slower, but not a big deal. I highly recommend!More

This is a no frills cafe that serves great food with a smile. The burgers were delicious and the quality of the meat good. The service was superb, they really couldn't do enough for us. They serve beer too which was very nice. We would...highly recommend a visit here. Thank you to all the lovely staff. All at a very good price.More

My daughter gets pizza here with friends every Friday evening, but she recommended the salmon burger topped with blue cheese and fig jam. It was amazing. I sampled her pizza too. Very tasty! The waitress was very friendly and helpful.

God selection, pizzas are excellent. Very vibrant owners and wait staff, big tables out the front if the weathers good. Right in the heart of Gustavus

We stopped here for lunch and it was awesome. It’s small but the food was very good. The Rueben is awesome. Had we known about this place we would’ve ate dinners here instead of at the lodge. I was sad to hear that it’s closing...as I would’ve ate here on our next visit for sure. Hope they’re still there next time.More

This was one of the best surprises of our trip. Although I do read that the current owners are trying to sell it. The food was excellent! The daily specials were really really good-- one day it was chicken adobe-- and it was superb. The...next night it was chicken fried steak with corn and mashed potatoes. They also have a variety of home made soups, sandwiches, salads and other yummy entrees such as fish and chips. Service was personable. Really worth going here.More

Enough variety to find something good to eat. Outside/inside sitting area. Easy bike ride from The Blue Heron. Enjoyed the local children and folks wandering through.
