Everytime we have eaten here we have thoroughly enjoyed it. Especially breakfast. There is usually a long wait but if your not in a hurry this is a place to go.

Car broke down on the I eight, and after her four hours getting towed in and getting the car worked on, this was a very nice place to eat. The food was very tasty, and the desserts are huge.

We were driving Highway 8 to Phoenix and stopped at Janet's Montana Cafe. The half sandwich and split pea soup were delicious and filling. The wait staff was attentive and helpful about answering questions about Alpine.

I'm surprised how high this place rates as the food is just okay and the prices are relatively high. We've tried this restaurant numerous times and tried a bunch of the items with the same mediocre results. Service was pretty good.
