We stopped in for breakfast after checking for local breakfast recomendations. We made the right choice. The food was prepared just right and served from a very friendly wait staff. Next time up, we'll be back!

Great place for breakfast and a home cooked lunch. You can catch up with the locals here and enjoy food like grandma used to make.

Plain and simple food. Service was fast and pleasant. This is a place where the food isn't fancy. Expect basics.

We have a lake cottage a few miles south of Clayton and we never come visit without a couple of lunches at the Clayton Cafe. It's a typical small town cafe filled with mostly local residents enjoying good food and very personal, friendly, hometown service!

I remember it was fairly early when we got there on a Saturday morning, can't remember exact hours of operation. But they're only open for breakfast and lunch, only accept cash or check.
