Good food, at a good price! Always looks like it's jammed packed by all the cars outside, but always find a place to sit! There Sunflower bread is amazing! The portion size of the food is perfect, and the staff are awesome!

This place has a great local atmosphere and their breakfast is reasonably priced and delicious. The home made corned beef hash is exceptional.

Great small roadside cafe for breakfast and lunch, not open on Mondays. Plenty of parking if you're heading north with sleds.

We actually live about 2 miles from this place and have only been twice! Both times were very good. Just a little Mom and Pop place, but food is homemade and good!

We were coming home from UMF and came across this small restaurant for breakfast. One of the best meals I've had in a long time! Wonderful, friendly staff and the home cooked food was incredible. Highly recommend the corner beef hash!

Had a burger & onion rings and was pleased.....it was an actual hamburger patty that someone formed by hand - not a boxed/frozen one. I'll be back!

this place has been around for several years, having formerly been Greenlands Diner. I stopped in last week for the first time in a few years and the place is pretty much the same.
