I really didn't care for the flies I side the restaurant and around our take. I ordered a pancake, and I asked if they are sweet or not Because I Don't like too sweet pancakes. Her response was that No They are not, just don't use syrup on them. So I ordered and Guess what? They were sprinkled with Sugar... More

Ate breakfast here with a friend a few times. Quite good. Not quite the best in town, but close. Consistent. I enjoyed examining the historic cattle ranch brands embedded in the tabletops. Reasonably priced, good portions. Have never regretted a meal here.

Nice locals place. Only made it for breakfast but was pleased with the quality, quantity of the food. Great quick service. Looked like a reasonable lunch and dinner menu. Not a chain cafe, just a hometown place to eat.

I had breakfast, my husband had a club sandwich, neither was remarkable. The booth was really uncomfortable. Would not return or recommend.

Nice place to go for breakfast. Good old fashioned diner style food. Refreshing in this day of chain restaurants. Clean and great service.

I love the old fashion feel to this place, the excellent service and really nice people. Food has always been perfect and they come around back to your table more than once to check on you for anything else. (Great manners....). The walls are painted with history of the area and that really fun also. It does close at 3pm... More

We stopped for breakfast here while passing through Fortuna. The food was plentiful and delicious. Service prompt and friendly. We enjoyed it so much that we made a stop there on our way back too.

A good breakfast/lunch stop in downtown Fortuna. Good menu variety and most friendly staff. Small enough to order (and get) food cooked the way YOU like it. It is much like a locals hang out where you feel like one of them.
