“Must stop!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

We usually have the same waitress when we go, and she's wonderful! Food is good! Caramel rolls are good, when you can get them - they go fast! Chili is good, omelets are good. I haven't had a bad meal there at any time.

“"Best chicken strips, ever."”
Reviewed December 23, 2012

On our way from Minnetonka to KC, we opted to try the local diner instead of a truck stop or chain. So glad we did! My husband enjoyed a traditional club on wheat with fries; I had a tasty, beefy chili, and our 13-year-old daughter raved over the "best chicken strips ever!". The chicken was moist with a flavorful, old-fashioned style breading. Exceptionally good! We finished with a big dish of Bridgeman's Winter Wonderland ice cream--white chocolate with coated pretzels and dark chocolate truffles! We were tempted to strap a gallon to the roof to take home! Genuinely nice people served us. It was a pleasure and a treat... And affordable! Though we did not order pie, cheesecake or from the all-day breakfast menu, you can bet these selections would be good, as well!

“Reminds me of a true diner.”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

While spending the night in Albert Lea my wife and I were looking for some dinner.
We came across The Trumbles and thought we would give it a try. When on vacation we try to
give the mom and pop places our business as much as possible. As you walk in the door there is a rotating pie safe so you can view desert up close and personal for later. The place was clean
bright as we sat down. I had the chicken fried steak and my wife had the chicken tender melt sandwich. Both meals were good along with the service. Time for pie! They had kinds of pie I had never heard of. I setteled on a piece of pecan which was great. I would recomend
Trumbles to anyone when you are in the Albert Lea area.

“Great desserts!”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

Locally owned and operated--the restaurant is a good place for "cafe" food--not "fine dining"--but well-prepared cafe food. They are justifyably famous for their desserts--especially their pies!
