“Great little cafe”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

This was the cleanest little cafe ever. We came in on bicycles for breakfast and the server was busy cleaning from breakfast rush and getting ready for lunch. We asked about breakfast. She said breakfast till 11. Yea, just in time! Eggs cooked perfectly, sausage not too fatty but also not too spicy. Good value for food. Around $10 for the two of us but we ate off the senior menu.
The best thing that I can say about this place is IT IS CLEAN!! The menus are clean, the salt and peppers are clean. The floors are clean. The bathroom is clean. No schmutz in the corners. And it doesn't smell like disinfectant enough to make you want to loose your lunch. The server's apron is clean.
The best place for a good, clean meal on the Heartland Trail.

“Great batter-fried onion rings”
Reviewed June 17, 2013 via mobile

This is a typical small town cafe. It wa friendly, good and a large menu. There was nothing outstanding about it though except the battered onion rings. They were great! Would try someplace different next time. They weren't bad, just not outstanding.

“Home town at it's best”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

Yes, the food is amazing-the fries are just right, the patty melt and the french dip will keep you coming back. But it's the friendly, family service, the huge smiles and clean counters that made me feel like I stepped back into something special. If you want that small town experience, this is the place to go!!
