Nice local cafe with very tasty food, good service and pleasant, unpretentious decor. We thoroughly enjoyed both our breakfasts. Only a couple of miles off I-90 giving a chance to see a bit of local MN. Hope to stop here again!

My husband and I enjoyed breakfast at this unique restaurant yesterday. He sampled the biscuits and gravy and I tried the single Egg Benedict. Thought it was a nice option to have smaller portions to choose from. Both meals were delicious and good value. Definitely recommend.

We stopped here to eat on a cross country road trip from Washington to Wisconsin. The service was quick and friendly and the food was great. I had the Corned Beef hash, my wife and daughter had pancakes. Would definitely recommend and worth the short side track from 90.

We always stop here if we are coming back from Minneapolis or Rochester. The food is great with huge portions. The staff is very friendly and it has a homey feel.

We were looking for a Friday night fish fry and it was yummy. The Chicken Wild rice soup was GREAT. I asked for the recipe and they laughed at me -HA!

This is a clean, friendly family café. They serve breakfast all day and have by far the best Sausage gravy in the area. They even sell it by the gallons. Average prices, but excellent food and large selection.

Went on a day trip through bluff country in Southern Minnesota and needed some lunch. Found this little cafe/coffee shop in Stewartville and decided to give it a try. Restaurant was clean, staff was friendly and food was very good and delivered in a timely manner. Would definitely stop again...next time would like to try breakfast!

Not going type 200 characters but this is a great stop for coffee/espresso on the main drag to Rochester. I've had breakfast and it's good. Little mom and pop type restaurant.
