This place is probably one of the best breakfast spots in the state. Other than being a little small if you're bringing a crowd it's perfect. Plenty of parking and worth the wait if it is busy, but once you've tried it you'll see why. The service is friendly and the attention to detail of the food is impeccable. We... More

Went to the Alamode Cafe on a Sunday morning. Small resteraunt, needed to wait alittle while to be seated but it was well worth it. Had a delicious breakfast of their fall special which consisted of pumpkin,cinnamon, and apple pancakes with eggs and sausage. Everything was delicious. Would highly recommend stopping in.

We were looking to stop for breakfast on our trip up north and this place looked worth a trip off the highway. We weren't disappointed. Tiny dining room but lots of character and a great menu to choose from. Big portions and lots of flavor for a reasonable price. Will definitely be back.

Great breakfast! Quaint little restaurant, very clean, fantastic service! We were there on a busy Sunday morning, it was full, so the waitress asked if we would share our large table with two other couples. We all agreed, and we had a lovely breakfast and made some new friends! The house quiche was delicious, and the breakfast sandwich was piled... More

Darling little log cabin with quaint seating. Extensive breakfast menu. The quiche, homemade biscuit and gravy, and omelettes are amazing. The kids loved the waffles. Accommodated all my children's unique asks. Fabulous experience all around.

I've eaten twice at this restaurant, once for breakfast and once for lunch. Both times it has been great. I highly recommend this little place for some great home cooking.

We were completely and pleasantly surprised by this little log cabin in Big Rapids. Don't let the exterior deter you from the good, down to earth, American food inside. You could tell that our breakfast was lovingly prepared and presented picture perfect. And delicious!!! The two young ladies who were serving the tables were very thoughtful and sweet. The prices...
