5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2012

Great place to eat. They make their own sandwich buns and they are delicious. French fries were also very good.

“Breakfast!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2012

The breakfast is good and economical. It is also one of the few places that is going to be open for Easter breakfast - not brunch!

“Not so good”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2012

My husband and I were looking for a place to grab a bite to eat on our first weekend trip to Galena. We saw their prices and thought they looked reasonable so we went inside. The waitress was very friendly and took our order quickly. He ordered a burger basket and I a chicken salad croissant. His burger was a little too rare for my taste and looked very unappealing. He said it was ok. My sandwich was not good at all. It looked like white meat chicken salad but it seemed to have several pieces of gristle or something in it. The croissant was cold and hard. The fries were saltless. The cafe is cute and the waitress was good, but that isn't really what anyone really cares about when they are going out to eat.
If you are in town for lunch try something else out. This was a miss.
