The restaurant needs to invest in a Panini Press that makes a proper toasted Panini. The breakfast panini came on a soft piece of ciabatta or foccacia.

Our waitress was very friendly and helpful with the area. The food is great, with helpings big enough for 2 or more to share.

This little corner cafe is only open for breakfast and lunch, but they serve breakfast all day and that must be their specialty. We came for a quick lunch and it was just okay - nothing special. It's cheap and the waitress was very friendly and attentive, but the "charbroiled Angus burgers" were basically just preformed patties grilled on a flat top and were a bit on the greasy side. Fries were hot and tasty. The sandwiches come with cole slaw (which tasted funny) and a cup of soup - this day it was standard chicken noodle, not bad, but again - nothing special. If you're really craving a burger in Galena, probably should go on down the street to the Victory Cafe or Durty Gurt's. For us at least, the Golden Hen did NOT lay a golden egg!!

Both my wife and I had omelets...I hate to imagine how many eggs went into it. Very good food & great value. The fresh squeezed orange juice was great too! Thanks!

my husband is obsessed with corned beef hash and was thrilled a few years ago to find that Golden Hen made their own from scratch. we returned this time and it was canned Hormel. I got the eggs benedict and it was bland and prepared on a honey wheat english muffin which ruined the taste and didn't go well with the holindaise. it's still probably one of the best breakfasts on main street, but we were disappointed this time. the service is always down-home, friendly, and speedy.
