“great daily specials”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

Great lunch specials. I had a bowl of chilli with a grilled cheese sandwich and it was really good and very filling.
Need a good inexpensive lunch, stop by this lunch counter!

“Diner within an eclectomart”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

The atmosphere is kinda cool. You dine in a reuse shop. The food is homemade, simple and good. Soups are a good bet, breakfast is made in front of you while you watch. Read the paper chat a bit, shop a bit, have another coffee refill, relax this is near Mayberry like. Get some gossip or spread some.

“Have breakfast with the locals”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

If you want a real local experience, head down to the counter at Needful Things for breakfast. Located inside a second-hand thrift shop, you would expect to find a brekjfast and lunch counter but there it is. There are a few tables as well as the counter. The food is simple but good with good size portions. The staff is uniformly welcoming and friendly. I always feel comfortable here. It seems to be a local hang out for farmers and retirees...drinking coffee and talking about local issues. Like I said, just a good local experience where you'll feel welcome and have a good, traditional breakfast at a very reasonable price.

“Great lunch counter”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

Having eaten here many times over the last 15 years for both breakfast and lunch. I hadn't eaten here in about a year since I have been away but had lunch there a coupld of days ago. Exactly what you would expect from a lunch counter. Decent food at a reasonable price. Very friendly atmosphere.
