Had lunch there one very hot afternoon. Had driven through Chester and were not attracted to any restaurant/café for lunch until we saw the Old Town Café – looked appealing from the outside. Quite small but homey inside and busy – popular spot with locals. Service was great and the food was very good – simple choices but freshly made. I had a BLT and spouse had an omelet. Both excellent. Got lots of good advice from locals on best way to see Lake Almanor. An oasis in Chester – friendly and good basic food. We will be back.

This is a small cafe. It's fairly crowded. They serve breakfast and lunch.
We've been there the last two years we've been to this area.
They make good food.
The service is a little leisurely. Food is prepared from scratch for each table so the food doesn't rush out of the kitchen. But we find it worth the wait.
They do much of their own bakery goods and we like them well enough that we usually buy some to take back to the house.
The young women who work there are competent and cute -- by that I mean they're friendly and engage with their customers, as well as knowing the food they serve.
Prices are pretty easy.
This is a good place for lunch and dinner.

Terrific breakfast on Main St. Don't go for dinner. They are not open. The pastries are made fresh daily. You can read the weekly paper and talk to the friendly locals who frequent the place. I like the counter seats where I can chat with the staff, too.

Really enjoyed a thick piece of ham with my eggs...could've had a bigger slice but left totally full.

Charming old style food. Great sausages, good gravy and good home comfort food. Lovely staff. We ended up spending an extra hour just visiting with other customers. You won't be disappointed.
