I love the McFarland House Cafe not only because it's in an historic McFarland building but the owners, Ann and Bill, are hometown, wonderful people. Just today I met a friend there for breakfast and a latte. What a great way to start the day.Their lunches are also tasty--delicious soups and homemade sandwiches. They also sell local bakery items and ice cream. It's handy to pick up a breakfast or lunch to go or to just relax and hang out there.

The McFarland House Cafe is a fun place to sit and work while you sip a drink-treat (good selections for hot drinks). It is also a great place to meet friends for a meal. Our kids LOVE it for the great ice cream. When there's a big event in our family, we celebrate with the trophy sundae (several scoops of ice cream - you choose the flavors, plus toppings). Best of all, to me, it is a hometown place with kindness and a smile, in a real home-business.

McFarland House Cafe has become a staple in this tiny village, serving up Ancora coffee, super salads and sandwiches, along with ice cream. The owner, Anne and Bill, are awesome- stop by for a chat. The only downside- they close early, serving breakfast, lunch and coffee until about 5. Not open on Sundays.

Tucked away in McFarland, a bedroom community not far from Madison, is this really pleasant cafe. The folks behind the counter were wonderfully welcoming and friendly. The cafe is simply decorated and the ambiance is suitable for talking and taking your time. On the recommendation of another reviewer we both had the salmon sandwich. The presentation in most cafes in these suburban communities is usually a sandwich plopped on a plate. Here it was accompanied with a simple greens salad and fruit. It looked delicious and tasted better. The sandwich had a horseradish sauce that was just right. It enhanced rather than detracted from the salmon which was perfectly done and remained moist. We both recommend this cafe highly.
