Great cafe run by local Mennonites. They feature their homemade sausage that is delicious. We always buy several packages to take home. We usually go to the Friday night German food buffet . The breakfast is also great. Love the cinnamon rolls!

It says so right on the front window! And they're not kidding. It's delicious. Highly recommend the pancakes and homemade syrup. Or if you go in a Saturday, the breakfast casserole.
