Very friendly staff, good food, good price. Great for a nice breakfast. Not much seating inside. A number of people were at outside tables, but weather was nice so not a problem.

Was passing thru Elkhart Lake area and stopped in, the cafe is a charming spot, friendly and the food was delicious, we happened to beat the lunch hour rush which appears to be a local hangout. I would recommend stopping in for some soup (homemade)...More
