If you're looking for a quick, homemade soup and sandwich lunch that's easy on the budget, but deliciously filling, this is the spot!

Came into town for a high school playoff game and this must have been the most neutral field for Maple River and Kenyon Wanamingo. Anyway, wanted a hometown place to meet my parents at and service was great as well as the food. Had the Ulmer burger and that was very tasty. Fries were nice and crispy. Spiced mustard came...

The sandwich I had was very basic, but also very reasonably priced. Nice place to go when you do not want huge portions.

When you want a good old fashioned diner breakfast Ulmer Café is the place to go! Went here to get an omelet and man was I impressed. Made with fresh ingredients and made to order. I had a sausage, mushroom and cheese, hash browns side of bacon and it was way too much. Everything was done perfectly. This is an... More

This cute little community spot is only open until 2:00. They have a table where local people seem to just come and go- so friendly. We had the special for breakfast - one egg, toast , and a party for $3.75- you can't bet that. We enjoyed the town flavor and friendly service!

I had French toast. Not cooked through, soggy, and really crappy. Great coffee tho. I'm a real coffee snob and don't usually drink restaurant coffee, but hubby said try his, and it was great. Clean, good service.

We all had very different things and they were equally wonderful! Service sweet and friendly. German specials ... Especially the potato salad ... The best!

If you like small town cafes, you'll enjoy the Ulmer. There are old buddies lingering over coffee, friendly servers who know all the gossip, and families stopping by after church. The breakfast offerings are pretty standard: omlets, pancakes, hashbrowns, eggs... Everything we had was competently prepared, and better than most chain restaurant breakfasts. Coffee was a classic small town beverage:... More
