Simple food and definitely greasy. It's somewhere between amusement park and cafeteria fare, but even pricier amusement park and cafeteria fare!

No frills, varied menu. Soups, salads, sandwiches, and basic entrees, prepared well, and served with a smile. We ate dinner there twice and breakfast once. Liver and onions, French onion soup, reuben sandwich, made-to-order omelet--all very tasty and reasonably priced.

This is your typical no frills diner-type cafe. The main selling point is the desserts - lots of fresh fruit pies and creme pies. Peach cobbler was delicious. The entrees, soups, salads were average and the menu was pretty limited. But it was full and...More

The best things about this restaurant is the location (near the Clinic) and the knowledgeable waitstaff that know exactly what you can and cannot eat the night before your blood tests at Mayo Clinic. The food is fair to good, but many restaurants in the...More
