Excellent pies! Servers are wonderfully attentive. Nice location, but parking is limited. Good selection of souvenirs. Will dine there again.

This is a very busy place at supper time and morning breakfast. Yet, the wait staff handle the crowds beautifully with excellent service and quick delivery of our order. The food is OK but not wonderful.

Who would go to a motel cafe for their 20th wedding anniversary? We did because of the consistently excellent food there. We live 2 towns south on I-5, and Dunsmuir has some decent restaurants but none like Hi-Lo. My husband ordered the Loggers cut of...More

Congrats on your 20th Anniversary! That is no small accomplishment these days (husband and I going on 26 years). I am so pleased the food was great. We make all of our desserts right at the restaurant. Thanks for coming in and celebrating with us.

This fabulous diner has a great menu. Loads of classics and surprises too. We had liver and onions and the meatloaf and both meals were tremendous. Good service and you have to try a slice of pie. Sumptuous.

Thank Scorah
Tracy G, Manager at Hi-Lo Cafe, responded to this reviewResponded 3 weeks ago

Scorah, Thank you so much! We are one of the few places that still offers liver and onions. We don't sell many of those but those who get it won't allow us to let it go. Our pies, cobblers, etc are all homemade as well.

Good food, nice variety of choices. Able to accommodate larger groups, we had 12. Portions good sized, everyone enjoyed breakfast. Our waitress Raven was awesome. Parking a little dicey as it is on very busy street.
