We stopped for brunch on a Saturday afternoon. The food was wonderful. I recommend the corned beef benedict, crepes, or wild rice omelet. You won’t be disappointed!

We stopped here while paddling the Mississippi. Restaurant is a short walk from the public launch. Loved the 'Nice' Club sandwich and fries. Menu has a wide variety of choices.
