Quilt on ceiling and news stories from the area on tables under resin. Very quaint, nice people, and food was perfect!

No better place for breakfast in Highland. Ask and you shall receive. My personal favorite is the bacon laced pancake. Thanks Patrick! The Logan is not to messed with. 😊

Local fine establishment that offers home style cooking breakfast and lunch. I primarily eat here for breakfast, but they do have a lunch crowd. All the meats are from local producers as well unless things have changed. the waitress's are on top of it and the service is great.

A group of six of us ate lunch at the Ninth Street Cafe yesterday before we visited Rosemary's Quilt Shop next door. The food was great, and the service was excellent. Portions were large. They were also serving breakfast, along with a fish special with a choice of three fishes. We noticed on the way out that they served chunky... More

We had breakfast there on a Sunday morning, but went just a bit earlier than normal in order to avoid the Sunday crowd. It didn't take too long to get our food, and the prices were more than reasonable! Their pancakes are delicious, and my husband was pretty fond of their biscuits and gravy. With everything that our table ordered,... More

My wife and I went there at least 2 days a week when we lived in town. Now we moved 20 miles away and still go there every time we want to go out to breakfast. Very inexpensive, excellent food with a great staff!!

Went here for breakfast and was impressed with how busy the place was. The food was very good. I really enjoyed the pictures on the wall, Lot of local history. The server was very friendly even though she was quite busy. It is easy on the wallet.

My husband and I stopped by for an early lunch, but breakfast was being served as well. It is the best of both worlds for us, as he loves breakfast foods and I love lunch foods. He had Ted's Big Breakfast with two eggs, two sausage (mett) links, hash browns and two pancakes. All were very good. I had the... More
