Restaurant details
Reviewed March 12, 2013

Mt. Vernon is a cute college town with eclectic shops and food options. By far, Skillet Cafe is my favorite place for breakfast! The food is always fresh and hot. As a vegetarian, I appreciate that they list vegetarian options on the menu (instead of having to ask) - it makes one feel welcome.

The people who run it - from the owners to the young staff - outstanding!

When it was time to celebrate my sister's birthday breakfast, this was her first choice (and we both live more than 20 miles from this town).

Highly recommend this cafe, especially for breakfast.

We rarely eat out and when we do we come here. It is a nice place that has great food, doesn't really matter what you order. The cinnamon rolls are to die for! My only complaint is that they use a lot of oil for their pasta, however you ask them to lighten up (a lot) and they do! The people are really personable and never make you feel like an inconvienence even when you show up at the busiest time. Love it! And really child friendly too!

A really nice welcoming atmosphere. We had breakfast, which was excellent. Omelette & pancakes.

The lunch fare looked really good. We are going to go back.

We're East Coasters and going to visit my family in a small town north of Mt. Vernon is probably one of the most difficult things we do each year because we can't find a decent breakfast place. But now we don't have to worry about it because we've eaten at Skillet three times and it was perfect. The atmosphere is great, the people are friendly, and we left totally satisfied. Make a point of eating here.
Things I wish they had: (a) Local jams/jelly for toast. It seems a pity to ship in little packets from the south when there is so much good stuff grown and made in Iowa. (b) soy milk for us lactards. (c) Recycling.
