We had breakfast and it was very good. If you're from the area, you can visit with friends; out of towners get to watch an old-fashioned, down-home restaurant at work. The owner is the cook, the server has been there over ten years and everyone...More

Food was fresh, including eggs. Pastries are homemade. Delicious. Very good portions of food for the price. Very nice ladies for waitresses. Definitely diner food, nothing fancy here. Probably no gluten free options. But delicious and great service.

OK, Broken Bow is much larger than Lake Wobegon, but Betty's City Cafe is just like the Chatterbox. My breakfast that I had after walking the 1/2 block from the Arrow Hotel was what breakfast is supposed to be. Betty did it up, two eggs...More

Charming, friendly, and excellent food. Everything is homemade - even the meat is above grade. The donuts are made on site and they supply the entire county with donuts. The butterfly donut was my favorite, the cinnamon rolls are like mom made! You cannot do...More
