My girlfriend and I had the best Turkey Club sandwiches we've ever had in our life here!!! Not only were they the largest ever, but the flavor was unbeatable!! We had ours on wheat bread. The Cajun fries were also awesome. If you're heading to Bow Lake for the day, make sure you visit "Karen and Julio's" for a sit... More

It's a small, local hangout with only about five or six tables, but it's a great place to get some diner style home cooking for breakfast. The usual fare, cooked up fresh to order. Friendly owners/waitstaff. Downside: coffee wasn't that great. Maybe try a different brand that isn't so bland and weak? Breakfast places need to have really good coffee!!

Good breakfasts and excellent service. Family owned and operated. Nothing fancy but the food is good. I've had many breakfasts there. It is a breakfast and lunch place, but about a year ago they began opening for supper Thursday nights. I went once for supper when they first started it, but the occasion hasn't presented for me to return for... More

The best blueberry pancakes and link sausages ever! I have had pancakes from Arizona to New Hampshire and these are the lightest and most tastful of all! The sausages are nice and big, not the little ones. And a bonus, today I was served real maple syrup!

My family has been wanting to try this little restaurant for quite some time now..we finally went last Sunday morning and the breakfast was GREAT! The food was delicious, served hot with friendly servers also! The negative is that we almost did not even go in because the outside looked so run-down, dirty windows etc. I remember the Iisenglass store... More

We really enjoyed our meal -- friendly service, good food, generous portions, and reasonable prices. Forget not being able to get an egg mcmuffin after 10:30 -- they serve breakfast all day!
