Tried restaurant for breakfast & found everything simple & average. Prices were less than other restaurants, decor nonexistent, location made parking a challenge. More like an old fashioned local joint with views of the street.

The SOB (as it is known locally) is Grand Marais's town breakfast-lunch gathering place. It's a 'Sixties kind of cafe, with plastic bench seats, and picture windows looking out on the town and Highway 61. I've been going there with my family for a decade, ever since we bought property outside of town. Sometimes one needs a respite from the newer hipster-yuppie tourist restaurants in town, and this is the place to get it. The food is typical cafe fare, but prepared fresh and served with a smile.

For a reasonably and fairly priced breakfast in Grand Marais, this is the place. Food is quickly served, well prepared and tasty. I am told that this is the breakfast destination for locals and you will not go wrong here. Recommended.

This is a good place for a simple breakfast, nothing out of the ordinary. Seems to be place that town people go to.
