Great selection of sandwiches and cold beer. Fast and friendly service. We stopped at the Old Tymer cafe two days in a row and the food was great both times.

The burgers were great, the fries cold. However that could be due to the extremely poor service we received. Our server seemed to continually forget we were there. She seemed lost and wandered around rather than being efficient. The cafe wasn't very busy so that...More
