Had to stop here as my Mom's name is Bev (and she is a great cook). The place was packed and stayed that way. The wait staff were wonderful, very friendly, upbeat, and stayed on top of things. The food got mixed reviews from the four of us - good basic breakfasts, not fancy. Our only real complaint was about... More

The place is small and cramped, but the breakfast was great. Try the country skillet. Word of warning ... they take only cash.

This is the classic small town cafe experience. I had the chicken fried steak with sourdough toast and it was excellent. My wife had scrambled eggs with bacon and wasn't as impressed. The locals probably hate that out of town folks have discovered this place, but that's the way it goes. This is a cash only cafe so come prepared... More

As out-of-town visitors we were unsure of a selection and this location is a short drive from the steamboat landing. We found the place busy for lunch, a bit cramped. There was a good variety of selections on the menu. Our meal was hearty. Service was a bit slow with the crowd but we made it in time to be... More

We went there for breakfast. The omelette contained all canned ingredients and I think it had processed cheese, possibly like a velveeta. The bacon was super fatty and I had to discard most of it. Granted, the price was reasonable. But still, not worth the visit.

Stopped in Bev's for breakfast while visiting Red Wing. The folks were all so welcoming and friendly, and the breakfast was delicious. All homemade with large portions we felt we really got our moneys worth here. We were hiking all day, and with this large breakfast we did not need lunch.

You know a lot times when you go out for breakfast you just want to eat because you are hungry.There just isn't a need for fancy cuisine unless you are craving a souffle or something special. This is that kind of place, very friendly and helpful staff, fill your coffee cup promptly with pleasing atmosphere type of restaurant. There is... More

There is lots to like about this little cafe. The service is great. Servers are both friendly and efficient. The prices are pretty great too. I had one of the lunch specials, cabbage roll, that was fantastic. Home made of course, with REAL mashed potatoes with a good homemade gravy and a side of cooked carrots. I loved everything about...

We were greeted with a friendly smile and courteous service. The breakfast was well made with large portions and surprisingly reasonable prices. This place use to be a Woolworths and had that nostalgic charm. They made sure our coffee never ran out of our cup.
