If you need a good home cooked comfort meal, this is a great place to head. Or if you want a great breakfast anytime of the day, once again, stop here. The staff are friendly. Service is quick and prices are reasonable. And on top of all that the food is good. It's not a big place but it works.... More

Had dinner here and it was very good. The service was excellent and always concerned if we needed anything. It isn't very big inside but the employees make it a must stop!

It not a large place and that's what perhaps keeps it so great. Haven't had a bad meal there yet and don't expect to. Personal service by friendly staff. Carmel and Cinnamon Rolls are fabulous. Absolutely would recommend this little gem!

Food that reminds you of a good home cooked meal. Their desert bars are second to none. They will cater also if they have time. I've had their food numerous times and it never disappoints.

If you don't mind the wait almost any morning, this does have the best breakfast in Bismarck. Can be crowded but service good once you get a seat. No waiting area so try to avoid tabled near the door. This is a local operation with no amenities except good food. Can only speak to breakfast though.

Enjoyed our breakfast! The portions were large. The waitress was very nice and the food came out quickly. Would definitely go there again.

This restaurant is very small in size, but good on service and great food. The caramel rolls are to die for and sell out fast.. Everything is homemade..
