The staff was friendly and the food was good. I like the Hawian burger was good and Morgan was great. They need to add wifi.

Bub's was packed, inside and out. Service did not suffer, though. My western omelette and toast were fine and filling. Two servers took great care of me, in my tiny, quirky wooden booth at the front door. Very busy spot there. I think I'll enjoy lunch better on the covered patio, which is just a few feet from the really... More

Bub's Burgers and Ice Cream is centrally located on Main Street right on the Manon walking trail. As the name says, Burgers are their specialty but we also like the hot dogs, waffle fries and other sides. The challenge is that if you (one person) can eat the Big Ugly burger (1 pound after cooking) you'll get your photo on... More

Great place for breakfast and lunch. We love the food and service. We've had small group business meetings and it worked out very well. Will definitely come back again many times.

The hardest thing about coming to Bub's is deciding whether I want breakfast or lunch. The food is phenomenal and there are always creative specials including a drink, pancake and quiche. They also serve elk sausage which is amazing. My absolute favorite menu item is the grilled cheese. It's unique with a red pepper and pesto but so delicious!!

My boyfriend and I were in town for the weekend and wanted to grab breakfast. Neither of us had been to Bub's Cafe, and we were pleasantly surprised. We went at the busiest time on a Saturday, but only had about a 10 minute wait; they also had tables outside to sit at while you waited. After being seated, we... More

Food isn't great at all. Service was slow and not attentive. I had to wait almost 10 minutes for syrup and ketchup to begin eating my breakfast.

What a delightful surprise this cafe produced. Walking the MONON trail, there it was & we just had to go in. The menu also provided a few surprises with choices not seen before. The food was delicious & well presented.
