Best little secret in Kankakee. Homemade cooked food. The pies are to die for. Good friendly kind staff and owners. Worth the stop.

We love this place. It's all homemade. It's a great place to see friends and enjoy an awesome meal. We eat breakfast here every Saturday and have eaten lunch and dinner here a few times too. It is the best.

Take s step back in time when you walk into the place. Just a great setting with "home cookin". You cannot go wrong here. Make sure you have a piece of homemade pie before you leave. You will not be disappointed!

Great local "mom and pop" style cafe! Fantastic service, old fashioned booths, tables with that "traditional" dinnerware make for a back in time feeling! The food was prepared and cooked perfectly! Fast friendly service! Highly recommended!

A local institution. Not a destination. A place where locals gather for pie, coffee, breakfast. Solid.

Extremely busy; that's when several generations of families meet. Slows down a bit after 9, but you will have to stand in line before then. The @corner booth" sits 6 and is most coveted by grouos.
