If you're looking for value and hearty portions this is it. My friends and I stop here every year to fill up on a hot breakfast before we start our boundary waters trip. Love the atmosphere, they open very early to accomendate the canoist early starts, breakfast is tasty, has a small town feel and its quick. We leave full and happy to begin our journey into the great outdoors.

Brittons Cafe has the most wonderful food and everyone is super nice and friendly. If you want a good filling meal for a reasonable cost Brittons is the place to go.

Outstanding breakfast. But get there early, or you'll wait for a table!

Your classic cafe. An experienced waitress covering 6-8 tables all at the same time and still able to warm my coffee. Big, stick-to-your-ribs breakfast. I had the ham/cheese omelet (eggs were just 30 seconds too done, but that's being picky). Son had the ham steak and was very satisfied.

Hugh portions of food, fresh baked cinnamon and caramel rolls. Pancakes are gigantic. You will not go away hungry. Very busy in the morning, tables are close together and it was crowded.
