“This is now called the Hwy 87 Cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014

The is a small quaint place with very good food. It is open for lunch & on Friday evenings. It is in front of the Cocky Rooster Bar & also next to the Hatchery. It is easy to get to & from. Very good food. No liquor served though

“This place is my favorite for lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2011

I have been a loyal customer of the Hen House for years...and years. Wendy Jimenez, the owner, makes you feel at home the moment you walk in and the food is always great. My favorite is JP's Grilled Turkey and Swiss. It just melts in your mouth (and I'm not a big sandwich eater). You MUST have the bread pudding with Bourbon Sauce made with scraps from their homemade breads. TripAdvisor gives you a ranking of 1-5. I'd like to give them a 10!
