Had breakfast on the back porch. It could use some scrubbing. Wooden picnic tables were dirty with bird droppings. Self serve coffee and paper plate dining but the food was good quality and tasty. Not a breakfast destination if you are not staying there already.

Too good to be true. Great spot for lunches and entertaining family. Please don't go though, we like it not crowded. :-)

Their Chicken Sandwich is amazing and the staff is super friendly. We ate here before taking our Kayaks down the river and were so thankful we did!

Enjoyed lunch with girlfriends there. Fish and chips spot on, not greasy, hot fresh and crispy. Cobb Salad, generous portion, presented beautifully and very tasty. Want to try the reuben next, I hear it is grand.

Best hamburger! I loved sitting outside on the deck, and my dog loved being close to the water and to me. Good hot coffee. The people were very, very friendly.

Since we stayed a week in the campground adjacent to the Cafe we knew we would eat here at least once during our stay. The Hostess, Becka, greeted us during our campground check-in. She is so bubbly and effervescent we were compelled to walk back...More

Having left Little River we stopped here for breakfast after reading the reviews on here. It doesn't really 'grab' you as you drive up, however once inside the place is clean and friendly. I had the pancakes which were very good and my son enjoyed...More
