We had a very very yummy breakfast. Very good menu selection. Our portions were very good and the prices were really good. Service was friendly and extremely attentive. Will stop there again when we pass thru town.

I had a terrible experience. Service was beyond slow. I could make a better omelette anyday. Not good at all. Just getting a glass of water was tough. The bathroom was disgusting also. Not a very clean place in general.

We often go there for breakfast after church services on Sundays. Their French toast is spectacular--they slice their bread horizontally, so one slice is great, but it's so good you might want two!

Who would imagine a breakfast as good as this in a small town? The only thing more authentic than the food is the people who eat there. The salt of the earth. Nothing phoney just real people

The portions are huge and tastefully prepared. I had a breakfast wrap with mushrooms, egg, cheese and jalapena peppers. Delicious! My partner had a cheese omelette with loads of bacon strips, toast for making sandwiches with the excess egg and bacon, Coffee was fresh and bold. Still can't believe this is served in rural Minnesota in a former Great Northern railway station complete with artifacts which includes calendars from 1943 and 1949.

Even a bagel with cream cheese was big city worthy. As if all this was not enough, the fare was way too cheap. Not a surprise because we knew prices from the menu but the realization was an awakening. Long live rural America!

We had a very good breakfast, excellent service. We will return! The place has a 70's atmosphere, the servers were awesome.
