Too good to be true. Great spot for lunches and entertaining family. Please don't go though, we like it not crowded. :-)

Our family camps here every year. Great campground with a fantastic cafe! In all the years we have camped here, I never sat down and had a meal at the Flats Cafe. Fresh, hardy, and well made. Their breakfast menu was what our family came to have and they did a fantastic job. A few of us had the vegetarian... More

Their Chicken Sandwich is amazing and the staff is super friendly. We ate here before taking our Kayaks down the river and were so thankful we did!

Enjoyed lunch with girlfriends there. Fish and chips spot on, not greasy, hot fresh and crispy. Cobb Salad, generous portion, presented beautifully and very tasty. Want to try the reuben next, I hear it is grand.

We stayed at the campground for a few days and decided to go to the little cafe the morning we left. I wish we would have gone everyday. Small cozy cafe with great service. I had the Albion Omelette and it was the best omelette ever. I would have never thought about cream cheese, spinach and guacamole in my omelette.... More

Based on all of the reviews I expected really good food, but that was not the case. We were there for lunch and my blt was just average. Hot house tomato, iceburg lettuce and bacon pieces and the onion rings lacked flavor. The clam chowder was very good and my husband's cheeseburger was ok. The servers were very nice, but... More

Best hamburger! I loved sitting outside on the deck, and my dog loved being close to the water and to me. Good hot coffee. The people were very, very friendly.

Since we stayed a week in the campground adjacent to the Cafe we knew we would eat here at least once during our stay. The Hostess, Becka, greeted us during our campground check-in. She is so bubbly and effervescent we were compelled to walk back for lunch right after setting up our RV!! We are glad we did!! Nearly everything... More

Having left Little River we stopped here for breakfast after reading the reviews on here. It doesn't really 'grab' you as you drive up, however once inside the place is clean and friendly. I had the pancakes which were very good and my son enjoyed the Troll omelette. My daughter had the breakfast sandwich and my husband had The Tender.... More

So you are in an RV campground looking like you are in an out-building at a campgrounds from 50 years ago. What a shocker to find such excellently prepared food, at least at breakfast time (which is what we had). I had an omelette that was divine, light and fluffy with carefully grilled vegetables within, perfectly formed, with potatoes and... More
