“Hair nets”
Reviewed October 8, 2012 via mobile

I have read other reviews in which hair was found in the food and my son found a hair in his food. It does not matter how good the food is( it is pretty darn good), if cleanliness is not a top priority at a restaurant. That is the only reason they do not get five stars.

“Breakfast only on Sunday”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

We arrived around 1:30 and headed straight for the bathroom after a road trip from Eagan. Only one unisex bathroom and 9 people waiting in line. We then headed back to the front area and waited in a very long line to get a table. Line literally snaked out the front door. When we finally got to the desk the hostess informed us, "breakfast was only served on Sunday and had they had limited selections". A quick glace on the menu showed a sort of family style breakfast - the only choice - eggs, breakfast potatoes etc. We left, but by the business this seems like a very popular choice. We will try the food on the next trip. Also, it is not open on Monday's so keep in mind.

“Family Brunch”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

Went for a Sunday family brunch. Excellent food, service. The food was served family style and was delicious. This restaurant is an older house turned into an eating establishment and makes you feel like you are eating in someone's dining room. They also have seating in a porch area and they have various items(jams,breads,teas) that you can purchase.

“Best Breakfast in Lake City MN”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

The presentation and the taste was wonderful. I got the avacado, sausage wrap with cheese with Mango side salsa and wow!! My friend ordered the eggs benedict and loved it!! They add little pieces of fruit to the side of the plate for a colorful presentation.

The waitress we had was very slow and seemed to avoid us. Maybe she was having a bad day.T
