Wonderful place for breakfast. Simple and small with delicious food. The breakfast menu was traditional cafe food plus homemade bread and jam.

The Bell is my mandatory breakfast stop when traveling through Lakeview. Often times full, getting a seat at peak hours can be tough. My preference is a stool at the counter.

Everything looks home made and tastes fresh. My default breakfast is the #1. Scrambled eggs biscuit and gravy and three huge sausage links. More than enough for any reasonable appetite. The #1 and coffee is about 8 bucks.

The place is neat and clean with genuine looks that only comes with age. The single server does her job well and always has been courteous.

Will keep coming back!

Small, simple, unassuming spot. We have eaten here often as we pass through town and have not been disappointed. Traditional cafe food...but excellent quality with nice service. It is a cafe from the 1950s that is a great find in a small town like lakeview. Pies are great.

The food is cooked fresh, the bread/rolls are wonderful and the portions are always large. It's small and noisy, the acoustics aren't good but the food makes up for it.

This restaurant, though not fancy is a very pleasant place inside. A clean restaurant that sells "comfort" foods. We enjoyed their country fried steak, mashed potatoes (real), cod (good, but not distinctive), Cheeseburgers....these were really great stacked high with all of the "goodies." The side salad we also had was fresh and only contained lettuce and tomato....not fancy, but the freshness was wonderful.. Their desserts were minimal as they were low on supplies.....this town is about 100 miles from anywhere (Klamath Falls, OR) is the closest town of any size to get their supplies. We visited twice, and it seemed that locals frequented the place regularly. Additionally, the burgers are covered with buns that are baked within the restaurant. They also sell bread which looked very wonderful!

Because we were in town unexpectedly due to an auto accident
we weren't looking for the most expensive place to eat. It isn't within walking distance of most of the motels/hotels, but is a great place to get great food.
