I was born in Mahnomen and prefer to avoid the casino on my infrequent visits. Stopped for late morning snack. Still some homemade cinnamon buns available - delicious! Friendly service and very reasonable prices. Open for breakfast and lunch until 2pm.

Simple menu, mostly sandwiches and a couple of pies. Local clientele. Good solid BLT with lots of bacon and a good 1/3 pound burger. Courteous service but tiny bit slow. Good example of a small rural cafe.

Read a couple reviews and decided to give it a try. Good food.... nothing fancy. The waitstaff was very pleasant and friendly. Good selection of food on the menu. Appeared to have all homemade pies. Looked delicious but didn't have room. :-)

Prices are cheap and food is decent. Hubby had hot beef sandwich with gravy on side. Said it was tasty. Thought the coconut pie was super.
