This is a popular place to grab a nice and fresh breakfast. The food is tasty and there's a nice variety of menu items without being overly complicated. The staff is super friendly and attends to your needs and requests accordingly.

Has a small town feel about it, very comfortable, great food (including breakfast food). Great place to go with friends and family. Conveniently located downtown Bemidji and within walking distance of many stores, including the Bemidji Woolen Mill.
