“Great local cafe”
Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

This is the quintessential local café. Everybody knew each other, the service was friendly, and the food was good.

This is a great value for good old fashion cafe food.

“Saturday Breakfast”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Very good food and service and they were packed. We sat at the counter and we were waited on right away. Hamburger steak and eggs was great. Good coffee also. Right on the main street so hard to miss.

“Good breakfast”
Reviewed February 3, 2013 via mobile

(Freshly cleaned, recently re-carpeted.) Food was good - a locals' breakfast spot.

We had 1/2 order french toast (3 thick half slices) - tasty. And a breakfast special of sausage patty, eggs, hash browns, and upgraded to side of biscuits and gravy (instead of toast) - all good, just too much to eat!

Nothing fancy, just good, homestyle cooking. Very reasonable prices. Service was welcoming and casual without being inattentive.

“Always a must visit!”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Red Kettle does breakfast and lunch sooo well. My favorite is the half sandwich and pie. Service is always cheery.
