The restaurant was that of a small building and was unsure what to expect when arriving. After descending down the stairs not sure what to expect went out to the back patio. Service was very good and the food was terrific. I know why there #1 for 3 years 👍👍

We arrived shortly after 7 pm., Friday evening. Patio was full and only a few tables were available indoors. Wait staff were extremely busy; however, they took time to answer our questions about the menu. A lovely menu for a small restaurant...using local produce! Appetizers and main courses served within a reasonable amount of time considering how busy it was.... More

we go to this restaurant every time we are in Creston. The food is always delicious, made with local fresh ingredients.Friendly staff and owner. I am a Celiac and they can alter their recipes for Celiac or other allergies. Very enjoyable and I recommend them to anyone.

We arrived at 7:15. On Saturdays they close at 8. We were greeted warmly. I wasn't all that hungry and wanted to save room for the sticky pudding dessert. I ordered a side salad. I was thrilled to see I could choose from one of their salads and get a smaller version of the salad. Even though it was near... More

We were passing through and went based on good rating. I didn't really stop to read other reviews. The staff is very sweet and the service was fairly efficient. The food: My husband enjoyed his cod burger and sweet potato fries. I had the curried chicken sandwich which was tasty and had a nice spiced flavor. The gazpacho special sounded... More

This restaurant was a referral from our hotel desk clerk. She told us that she ate here frequently because the food was so good. I could not agree more!! The salmon was excellent, and my associate had the teriyaki cod. She found that to be very tasty. The server was very helpful, and dinner just flowed. I would not hesitate... More

We stopped for lunch at the Real Food Cafe during our trip through Creston. We picked this place based on Trip Advisor reviews and we weren't disappointed! Our lunch was delicious! It's a nice little place with local art decorating the walls. Waitresses are very friendly!

Our meal here was very very good. We ordered a salad and the special which was a pork chop dish. The special was delicious! They use local food here, and make everything from scratch, so the pork chop came with carrots and zucchini that was obviously garden fresh. They had this outstanding chutney to go with the chop, and also... More

We visited this delightful small restaurant based on good reviews on Trip Advisor and were not dissapointed. The interior looked very warm and inviting but we chose the patio due to the day being quite warm. It was a good choice. Service was excellent and our waitress was most helpful with our choices. We enjoyed Tikka Masala and a thick... More
