Wow fast great service with outstanding food. This I would chalk up as a small town icon. The place was packed and service was so fast. We will be going back. It is worth getting off 94 to eat here

Cute little Cafe on main street. Greeted with smile! The locals were having their coffee. Warmed my heart they stay connected and took time to share stories with each other. We ordered and food came quick. Reasonable priced for Great home made breakfast! Clean!

We took my parents here because it was familiar in terms of food and location. It has gluten free items that my mom could pick from on the menu which was very nice.

Stopped in for what turned out to be an amazing home-cooked breakfast on a trip to MSP. The service was unbelievably fast and I will definately be stopping on future trips.

A group of golfers stopped for Breakfast before a golf tournament. Eight of us were seated right away. The waitress was at the table right away. We all ordered and the food was there quickly. The eggs were cooked perfect and every thing was very good.
