“Typical greasy spoon.”
Reviewed 18 August 2013 via mobile

Stopped for breakfast on way home from lake. Food was really pretty bad. Tasteless. Overpriced. Omelets purporting to have numerous ingredients actually had just a teaspoon. Just slapped a Kraft single on and called it a cheese omelet.

“Good food, friendly service”
Reviewed 14 March 2013

A group of us stopped at the Birchwood Cafe on our way up north. The service was very friendly and everyone loved their meals. My husband highly recommends the wild rice soup, and I loved the french dip. The decor is not real fancy, but the food taste like good old fashioned home cooking.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed 24 February 2013

The food here is amazing! It's all homemade! Kathy (waitress) and Louann (cook) make our dining experience. They are wonderful!
