I have a friend who is local to the Waupun area and earlier in the week that we were coming, she posted about Helen's Kitchen. We decided to try it on Saturday night after the truck show and we were so glad we did! It's a family restaurant so the variety of options is lengthy, but we all found food... More

Took the kids out to breakfast. Great, food, a bit pricey for feeding the kiddos. They ordered the waffles with fruit, iced coffee, it was fairly fast. And very tasty.

Third generation eatery. Basic, moderatelypriced menu, clean, pleasant staff. Reasonable prices. The second time you stop in, everybody acts as if they've known you forever. A small-town, old-time gem.

The kids meals were great priced and 5 or 6 different options for the kids to choose from. The menu had lots of choices and they serve breakfast all day long. If you... More

This place is definitely better than #5! When you roll into small town America, you always hope to find that gold standard old american family run diner that can fill the need with comfort food. This is that place! We stopped in late on Friday were seated as well as serve within minutes of our arrival. I had the Southwest... More

Nice little restaurant tucked away in a shopping strip. Our waitress was very nice! Food was good and reasonable. Table and surroundings were clean. Recommend giving this restaurant a try if in the area.

This place was great. We had a limited time frame between hockey games and the staff made room for 27 of us. The service was absolutely terrific. All the waitresses were happy and helpful. Cheerie ! Food was not bad from where I sat. My breakfast with eggs and cinnamon French Toast, was tasty but normal. They took great care... More
