I live nearby and love to eat at this cafe. The beef served is raised special just to give Lewis Cafe customers the fresh flavor they like. The cafe has a homey feeling where you can choose to sit in private with a wooden booth...More

Family owned. This little cafe is a step back in time. Food was very good. At our table we had steak, and burgers. Everything is freshly made. AND don't miss the housemade pies!!

Stopped at 11:00 a.m. on Sunday morning. Great pancakes, hash browns and sausage but had to wait 45 minutes on food. Would highly recommend but not the best option if you're in a hurry.

We were storm chasing and needed breakfast. Got off the freeway and pulled up this great old time café. We were there for breakfast and loved everything. The home made sausage patty was so good, good ol' fashioned hash brown potato's, biscuits and gravy all...More
