We have stopped in twice now for breakfast. The first time, they had very little business and the second time it was swamped. Both times the kitchen was very slow and both times the toast arrived quite a long time after the rest of the breakfast. The food was very good and the waitresses were very friendly. Just wish they... More

My wife and I have driven by many times, we started seeing a few cars in the morning and at lunch (Breakfast / Lunch Only). We tried breakfast and was surprised at the many varied choices, breakfast was very good. We tried lunch and the burgers were big and cooked the way we wanted, with plenty of crispy fries. Very...

This spot is right on highway 50 and across from the park that contains the public access to Delavan Lake. The room is light and pleasant and the menu is typical of a family run small diner. There is no dish that is exceptional but is delivered hot and promptly. Service is average and you will need to shout to... More

The breakfasts here are outstanding! Don't plan on eating lunch either, because they will have to roll you out in a wheel chair. Big portions and just like the name states good down home family meals. The service was fast and friendly with a lot of local clientele that was proud to share their lake town and heritage. Great place!

Delavan has a treasure with this breakfast/lunch restaurant. Lots of locals seem to eat here...we found it accidently and will definitely go back. Elizabeth, the waitress, was a lovely young woman who made everyone welcome....including us! The fellas in the kitchen are doing a great job too! Delicious food and a pleasant experience.

This is a cozy place that has great offerings for breakfast and lunch. A bit of a sleeper on the exterior. One could easily drive right by. The wait staff was friendly, attentive and most helpful. I love breakfast at noon so I was pleased with the flexibility of the menu in time and options.

Went with my aunt, uncle and mom before we headed to the Dancing Horses Theater. We have never seen such unorganized place. The waitresses did not have any idea as to which table needed to be served and to be ordered. People sat, sat and sat finally got up and left. Food not thoroughly cooked. When ask for more water...
