You probably won't find this little gem unless you are a local. It is a favorite meeting place for friends who have come once a week or more for years. The tables are fun to read, and there is an eclectic mix of antiques, vintage, cowboy, kitsch, and more. We were there for breakfast. The food was o.k., and the... More

Ones that can burn off all the calories and still survive. It was very crowded at noon on a Friday but we were seated with 6 to 8 minutes. Was told... More

Another one of those great small town mom and pop cafe's that I search the countryside for. Super service, huge servings, so we usually split an order, great home cooking, what more do you need? It's a small place, only open mornings till 2:00, and usually there will be a wait. The counter is non reserve, so for 2 people,... More

Googled to see what would be the best place for breakfast on our trip from Tehachapi heading northbound. Have to say this was definitely worth the stop.... EXCELLENT food!

My chili is the most requested dish by my millennial kids and their friends. Cope's chili is better than mine! Packs a heat that keeps me scooping another spoonful in my mouth!

Had lunch; open face turkey with mashed potatoes. They serve real sliced turkey breast and real mashed potatoes. Huge portions and great food. I'd definitely come back for lunch or breakfast next time I'm in town. Salads looked good as well.

Local favorite in the" Dale". Large portions(possibly split) comfort food. You will wait during regular hours as this place is very popular

A haven't been here in a while, but it's just like I remembered it. Back then I was single with no family. I know it sounds like a long time ago. Fast forward to, today. I am here with my family for the first time. I don't know why I waited so long. The guests are very nice, the waitresses... More
