I stopped by the cafe for the first time recently for breakfast and was pretty impressed with their hash. Tasted fresh and homemade (versus a canned hash. Eggs cooked to my liking and very good potatoes.

Nice place for breakfast and good coffee. Service was great as well as the wifi which can be difficult to connect in Stinson. Love the baked goods too.

We are trying to book at dinner at the room adjacent to the cafe and neither John Gilbert or his wife Maxine will return calls. We're having a very small (8 people) wedding on October 22nd and would like to have a family dinner there. Anyone have a suggestion. Thank you, Pat Cole

Sorry, Pat, I have no suggestions. I booked our dinner at the restaurant. Did you specify the date and details in your phone message? That should get a response. Gary
