Travel the Lincoln Highway and you will find little historic cafe and motels that are a blast from the past. This stop has both. The food is homemade and the service is down right Iowan. You can't beat this place for price, taste or friendlyiness. Has booths and a seperate dining room. You won't be disappointed.

Thanks for noticing that our food is homemade ;-) There's nothing like real mashed potatoes and gravy, homemade soups, pies and daily specials.

Niland's breakfast is wonderful. Many items to choose from and all are delivered hot and fresh. Sandy is the best and her ability to remember names and faces makes you feel welcomed. Take the time to look around and see what has transpired through the years.
