The main draw is the on site bakery. They sell assorted breads and breakfast sweets. The sticky buns are my personal favorite (weakness). The that and sandwiches offered use this fresh baked bread. Breakfast menu offers the usual fare with a couple of twists such as the brisket and eggs. The smoky flavor of the brisket is a great eye... More

The Lincoln Inn is a great place to eat breakfast or lunch. The home cooking provides comfort and nutrition. Ordering from either regular menu or the daily specials will bring you some great food. The restaurant bakes all their own bread, so be sure to indulge...and you may buy a loaf to take home too. They have homemade cookies and... More

My early morning pit stop to fuel up before working a long day. Quick service, friendly staff, always ask how your doing no matter what the Dekalb Weather bring. Food is delicious, stop in and have a BIG home made cinnamon roll, and the bread is made in house daily. Just a great place overall.

Great for breakfast with good sized portions. Crowded on the weekends, especially morning after people get out of church. Best time to get there is before 9. They have also a bakery there, good bacon and a place to see your friends.

I love this place especially for lunch. My favorite meal to get is the Frisco melt. I always only eat half as the portion sizes are more than generous. Great place to go.

We have eaten here many times just for breakfast. Food is good and a wide variety of offering. They bake their own bread and rolls. Fresh Cinnamon and Pecan rolls yum! Coffee is hot and they keep it coming. Nothing fancy but clean and homey and on the main St. so some times parking can be a problem. Worth a... More

My family and I (including an infant) ate at the Lincoln Inn, a typical old-fashioned small town diner on main street in Dekalb on a Sunday morning. We arrived at 9:30 and were seated immediately but the place was full by the time we left. It seemed like many people were locals (always a good thing in a restaurant!) as... More

Excellent food and a reasonable price. Very high quality. Can't beat the homemade toast. Bakery items were awesome. If you plan to eat here, wear your comfy pants because you're going to need some extra room.

This is a wonderful stop for a homey breakfast, whether you want eggs, homebaked muffins (especially the cranberry ones), or the freshest fruit cup in town.

A great place with many 'regulars' from town. That says it all --when the locals eat there it must be good
