The cafe was just like it was when I went to school in 88 Food was great. Doesn't seem like it had changed at all. Chicken fried was great and veg of the day were fresh.

I really loved the the old timey feel you get right when you walk in. On one side it looks like an old diner and the other had some old timey looks. The bathrooms need an upgrade and the whole place looked like it really needed a good scrub down. I went during breakfast and the food was average and... More

This cafe has been here since 1936 and unfortunately did not live up to our expectations. Place was empty and we felt that we had interrupted their viewing of the TV - would not rush there for the food. Sorry.

This place has great food, there's hardly ever anyone in there! Great service and genuine food. Great old cafe feeling with friendly staff. Better then farm house.

Old Style Cafe with Lunch specials. We like to have lunch then walk around the square antiquing at all the stores. Basic comfort food. Quick friendly staff. Breakfast all day.. The family had chicken fried steak on the lunch special. Not fancy but filling and tasty.

Diner breakfast at its best. Eat there often and love their western omelet with sausage, lots of jalopanas. Friendly staff, lots of locals, nothing formal.

Thank Les T
