We often use trip advisor to pick restaurants so we chose the number one listed in Galena for lunch. I think maybe we ordered the wrong things. I'm guessing the quiche is good? The corned beef hash and eggs was fair but a little heavy...More

We had the best food. The cinnamon buns were light an the frittata was great. I love the motto of having enough that they hold to. Just enjoy what you have and hopefully it's enough. Great service and the view of the river and old...More

This is a fantastic, charming little breakfast and lunch spot in Galenia. My parents come here for special occasions, as they live two hours away, but were excited to share it with me. They have a few tables and a small bar downstairs for seating...More

One must like "cheese sauce" to enjoy this dish. I do like it, so I thought the breakfast was delicious and unique. It was 2 homemade biscuits (YUM!) covered in sautéed peppers, onions, scrambled eggs and cheese sauce. The special coffee cake of the day...More

Had breakfast here on our first morning in Galena. Well worth it! Food is absolutely delicious and I was able to enjoy a mimosa! (Others we’re raving about the bloody Mary’s, but I’m not a tomato juice fan). Local place, great history, highly recommend it!...More

Food was good, typical breakfast offerings. The restaurant itself was cute, and our server was friendly and efficient. The oddness was in seating. We arrived a little before 1:00 on a Friday (they closed at 2:00) in the off season, and asked for a table...More

Otto’s has the best breakfast in the region. Egg and quiche dishes excellent, sweet roll/cinnamon buns are tantalizingly tempting, French toast out of this world but the corned beef hash with eggs (I always do poached) is not to be beat. I only wish they...More
