It is a good place to eat if you enjoy breakfast food. the price is affordable so you do get value for your buck. The food is good. The service is gracious. The speed of service is pretty good. Overall a good place when you are on a budget and want breakfast food.

One of three 'diners' in Freeport, this one is tied with Big Apple (used to be above it) for me. Full menu, decent portion sizes, fair pricing (be sure to ask for the Farm Bureau discount if you're eligible BEFORE ordering). Service is off and on -- which is why it's only tied with Big Apple now. All in all... More

Visiting family in the area who are regulars here. Breakfast served all day, the skillets are huge, the food cooked to perfection and the portions large. Very fast and very friendly service. Nice atmosphere. Will likely eat breakfast here every day of our stay.

We go here periodically. We Herbert have the chicken fajitas for two. I love great the sizzle of the meat, innings and green peppers when they brunch it out too out thanks. You have to out the fajitas together yourself, but that is fun and you can arrange them as you want them. It generally comes with the plates. One... More

The Cafe is located on Bus. 20 West of town. A place you don't want to miss when in the area, it is well lit, clean and has a very... More

This restaurant was close to my downtown hotel so I stopped in for breakfast at 10:30 on a Saturday morning. Place was crowded and clearly a local favorite. I was able to be seated right away but while I was there I noticed several occasions when customers were standing in the small "lobby" waiting for a table. The waitresses were... More

Stopped here for breakfast and was greated by a very friendly wait staff and varied menu. Though inside it appears a bit dated the homey atmosphere, great food, and inexpensive menu makes you overlook these things. I had 2 eggs, hash browns, toast and coffee for less than 6 dollars. Plus the portions were huge. Cooked just like mom and... More
