This is a great find in Elk. A mix of diner and gourmet flair. Inside is like a diner with sit down and counter seating. Great breakfast menu and sandwiches. The hamburgers are grass fed with a Q brand on the bun. The salad was so fresh and organic. The owner greated everyone that came in. Now to say it... More

We stopped here with young kids just before close. The staff was very friendly. We all got one burger or another and they all were great. The veggies for the burgers seemed very fresh and the tomatoes had good flavor and color! I'd definitely stop here again and try more food!

We came here for lunch the other day after seeing good reviews on TripAdvisor! I had the pancakes, eggs and bacon. It was sooo good and so filling! The pancakes were huge! The bacon was super thick and not too greasy. The eggs were also very good too. The corned beef and hash was an unexpected surprise. Most places that... More

Best burgers we had all trip! The Bourbon Onion Berger was so good and the plain cheese burger was not plain at all. Both were tender and cooked to perfection. The side we had was fresh fruit in a yogurt sauce-yum! The atmosphere was eclectic and the staff were very friendly. We got blueberry Scones to take with us for... More

The server was friendly, she knew the menu quite well. I wanted a vegetarian soup, which they did not have on the day I was there, but they had many other veggie options..and I opted for the Huevos Rancheros....REALLY OUTSTANDING!!! Probably the best I ever had! Only thing that marred my experience was the LOUDness coming from the kitchen. I... More

We stopped here for breakfast while driving down the coast and had the BEST meal. We were trying to rationalize driving the 150+ miles from San Francisco just to come back for another meal

The lunch was very good. I had the patty melt and I can't remember what my wife had (I think it was the chicken panini w/o the peppers and onions) although I'm pretty sure I ate the other half of whatever it was when we got home for dinner. The menu is limited and red onions and/or bell peppers were... More

We were in town for two days. Ate breakfast both days here. Such a warm friendly place! The staff made you feel like long lost family. The food was great and plentiful. Service was fast and friendly. The place has a nice country cafe feel. Just a very pleasant place.

Had the best omelet I've had in a long time. Definitely the best fresh squeezed orange juice ever! Wish I could have a glass of that juice very day. Breakfast is served all hours they're open.
