Reviewed May 12, 2013

Had a delicious elk sausage with eggs for breakfast - how often do you get that? Reasonably priced, clean and pleasant. A real treat.

“Quirky & delicious”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

Good coffee, great food, very good service, quirky fun atmosphere. We went about 4 times during our stay & enjoyed every bite, every time. If you have mobility issues you may not be able to make the stairs. It was clean & most importantly delicious.

“Stairway to OK”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

Enjoyed breakfast here with another couple. All of the plates looked good and the dining area was a little quirky and very pleasant. A nice change from chains and hotels. Would probably return when next in the area. Not too sure about that $5.00 sausage my friend ordered on the side.

“WAS SO-SO”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

Hi, we tried the Stairway Café for the first time this past weekend, it was quaint, and we did get seated right away, the staff was very friendly. But the area to eat was just a bit too small, like sitting in someone's kitchen or living room. The coffee is advertised to be shipped in from somewhere terrific, but it tasted old like it had been made the day before. Nothing special about their coffee as advertised. I ordered a veggie egg-white omelette, and while I know egg-white omelette aren't the most exciting, this had really no flavor at all, neither did the potatoes they served. They do have that thick toast that people would like, I thought that was okay, but overall, this is just an average place to go w/ so-so coffee.
Sorry to say, we wouldn't go back again for breakfast.

“Great food, nice atmosphere”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

I was mid-roadtrip and had breakfast here before hitting the road again. The food was excellent - big, hearty, fresh - from an extensive and interesting menu.
Plenty of good vegetarian options. Decent coffee.
Service was fine. The setting is lovely and comfortable. Bathroom clean. I'd go back in a heartbeat if I was in the area again.
