Great service from the owner. Happy staff and customers. You can tell the care about quality ingredients and experience. Blt and then some. Great homemade soup and sandwiches. Desert list was broad. Lemon cream pie was very rich! All from scratch.

It's hard to find decent food in Soldotna and this place is no exception. The service is pretty lousy too. Room temperature water brought over by a grim faced waitress is never a good start to a dining experience. The little sandwich and gourmet shop next door sells larger sandwiches with better ingredients for less money, wish we would have just stuck with that and not ventured over.

We were traveling through Soldotna on our way to Homer and one of the tour guides at the Homestead Museum recommended this cafe when I asked, "can you recommend a local cafe that is not touristy?" She was right. Local residents frequent this place and I can see why. Food is fresh and delicious. I had soup and a half of a sandwich both great. All four of us liked our lunch. Even though they were very busy they found a creative way to seat us quickly. Reasonably priced. Browse the book store and you can find nice take away gifts too.

The food was well portioned, fresh and tasty - lots of salad options, sandwiches, etc., but our takeaway from the meal was the disappointing service - enough to the point where we will not consider returning. We ate during a weekday around 12:30pm.

It seemed as though there was one woman managing all the tables (10-12 in total?). Maybe she was just having a bad day, but her attitude/frustration was palpable. We watched her snap at a customer trying to get an idea on how long the food service would take, and let customers stand 5-10 minutes while there were open tables available.

On our end, we had placed our food order and all came back well. When she brought out our food we requested a coffee and water in addition to the meal. Neither of these items made it to the table. In fact - the server never made it back to the table. Never made eye contact... entirely disinterested in our business. 35 minutes post-meal, we walked to the register to pay our bill.

Will not be returning to this restaurant when in Soldotna again.

Since I am a frequent Soldotna visitor I have had an opportunity to go to this restaurant over the years. I used to find it consistently good. The past few times I have gone I haven't been impressed. The soup wasn't very tasty and the homemade bread was dry and crumbly. If you are looking for a good fresh sandwich and lots of choices go to Odies, which is right down the street.
