We like to eat in the screened porch area, but not enough room for kids in high chairs, kind of crowded.
You can't go wrong with anything you order at breakfast time.

The Testy Chef is my first choice for breakfast, and they make great burgers and sandwiches, too. My husband and I come here at least once a month for breakfast, sometimes more often, and we've been regulars for a decade. The menu is varied enough (although the basic menu doesn't change much), and there are usually 3-4 specials on the chalkboad above the kitchen.

The place is small, with most tables and counter stools having a view of the open kitchen. There's also an enclosed back deck that overlooks the Cedar River, pleasant about 6 months of the year, and chilly the rest of the time (although they try and heat the space with overhead heaters). The staff is friendly and always busy, so you may need to flag someone down for a coffee refill. They recognize the regulars, and greet everyone with a "Just sit where ever you like."

It's a good place to meet friends or family and catch up over breakfast or lunch. We've brought a fair number of friends here, and most have come back on their own.

When the sun is shinning in the Northwest it is always nice to take advantage of being able to sit outside. While the overlook view of the Cedar River is a little obstructed it is still pleasant. I have only eaten here for breakfast but it has always been good. This last time I had the Testy Mess and it was excellent. Cooked perfectly with the potatoes cooked all the way through but the onions and peppers a little more firm. Nice way to start the day.
