Home made soup. Home made pie. Y U M! We dropped in on a Saturday afternoon, prior to walking around downtown Rochelle. I had their Chicken Wrap (Broiled, not fried) My wife had a skillet, with her eggs ordered over hard. Both were very good, fresh, and cooked to order. This is family run - when the sign says "home...

Last ate here over a year ago and the food is still great with cheap prices. Experimented with the homemade salsas on my eggs and enjoyed. Had a tough choice between having a slice of chocolate Oreo or chocolate peanut butter pie. Went with the choc pb & it got better with every bite!

The food here is always good. The place is small and sometimes crowded but the food is always good. The service can be a bit slow at times but they are very friendly.

Family-run diner with good food cooked from scratch. The atmosphere is friendly, and conversations often spill from one section of the counter to another or even table to table (even among strangers)--that mythical friendly, small-town place where the waitress will remember how you like your coffee.

I love places that are old, clean, down to earth with good food and service. All three of us had entree salads and soup. Very good. Definitely will return.

If you find yourself downtown Rochelle IL there's an unassuming place that will blow your mind. Off the Wall Cafe is charming, local and most definitely the best place for food in the area. The beef tacos, Mexican style is probably the best I've had in this part of the country. Unbelievable prices for home cooked delicious food and wonderful... More

Stopped here because we had not been for awhile. Had the half order of biscuits and gravy and it was perfect. More than adequate, the biscuits were huge and delish, perfect ratio of gravy to biscuit. Great staff too.

We took a chance and were very satisfied! Went there for vacation brunch. Pancakes were delicious. The gal at the counter was very friendly and conversational. Wi-fi was adequate. Good menu choices. Not overpriced.

Searched local breakfast places while passing through on vacation. Cool place, limited seating but no wait. Fast service. Lunch served at 10 and breakfast all day. Everyone loved the way the buns were toasted and the tuna melt bread was awesome. Cash only, but ATM inside. Nicely located downtown. Bathroom was clean.

I would definitely go here again. The waitress was friendly and the portion size was large. I usually can finish anything but I couldn't finish the Carnivore Skillet. Not only was it a lot of food but it was very good. The atmosphere was just great.
