This is a Great place to stop in, a charming store! The burger was awesome with ham and bacon, along with the chili cheese fries and shake, my husband was in heaven. I had the cold plate with fresh homemade chicken salad and tomato slices, along with a true, cherry limeade, made right at the soda fountain!
Definitely worth the time taken off the highway!

So, this was a repeat visit for me. I had to be in Coleman for a funeral, and so made it a point to have breakfast at this old fashioned diner again. I wasn't disappointed! Not only was my food great, but I stayed at least 30 minutes after finishing to visit with the locals. They are sooo nice and friendly! Met the owner and had a great conversation with him. Now I will return here again not only for the excellent cuisine, but to visit with my new friends!

We stopped in Coleman on the way back to Austin from CO and happened onto the Owl. What a great fun place, especially for kids. Old fashioned burgers, grilled cheese and fries (served in a 1950s hot rod), ,milkshakes and root beer float. And the pharmacy part of the Owl has neat and unique gifts. Thumbs up on a great place to stop for a bite and shopping.

We stopped in at the Owl drugstore for breakfast on the way from Brady to Abilene, and had a delicious breakfast in this old fashioned diner inside a drug store. Full of locals, friendly service, you can see your meal being prepared - a real taste of America as it used to be. Lovely. Recommend the owls mess!
They were just celebrating 90 years of trading. What an achievement.
