Great place to go for a good meal; the only problem is there is often a wait on weekends as it is very popular locally.

Their biscuits and gravy are wonderful and the crispy hash browns are amazing. Best restaurant hash browns I've ever had because they actually BROWN both sides! The service has always been very friendly, and I like the fact... More

We sat at the counter and watched them cook with a mysterious bottle of some sort of oil. They used margarine instead of butter. Not good for me

Testy Chef Our Breakfast Club meets once a month at the Testy Chef. We love the friendly atmosphere, and ambiance of this tiny cafe nestled above the Cedar River. I usually order the Testy Mess.

Great Breakfast and Lunch Diner. If you get a chance, sit on the deck. It's relaxing year round with the sound of Cedar River below you!

Nothing extraordinary about Testy Chef. It is a little expensive for what you get, and the service is bleh. Can get the same thing at Denny's for half the price.

1.Testy? Like in easily aggrivated? 2. Or Tasty? Like in really delicious? I'm voting on number 2. We met friends here for breakfast. Had a wonderful table outside near the river. A great spring morning. It was beautiful. The food was delicious, and full of what was fresh in the area. I'd say this chef is inventive by looking at... More
