Atmosphere is small town, and the food is home cooked and great. Service excellent. Great place to have breakfast before you go see the local attractions such as Mid Continent Railroad Museum, Forevertron, Baraboo Bluff Winery, Natural Bridge State Park, or Rock Springs. Great place to have lunch afterwards too! Locals love it too, that says a lot.

The food is very good, well priced, and plentiful and my kids were able to split the 2X2 breakfast and bring some home! The decor and atmosphere... More

Great little place - scrupulously clean and with simple basic food and good-value specials. Classic place for breakfast. Go there if you are nearby.
