Very good food, serving both breakfast and lunch. Service was fast, friendly and efficient. There’s an adjoining ice cream fountain also. There’s daily specials on their menu. Wednesday was burger special for $6. The pancake sandwich with eggs snd sausage was good.

My husband got the Red Hut Rosti and I got the blueberry strudel french toast. We couldn't decide which was better. Both so yummy. This will be a regular breakfast (available all day) stop!

I'm guessing that this local favorite has been around at least 50 years. In that time not much has changed about the facility and the food has always been dependably very good. The service is excellent and the breakfast entrees are the specialties. The atmosphere...More
