Had a quick breakfast here this morning. Cozy atmosphere with lots of locals eating here. Server was friendly. My order (Traditional Canadian breakfast) came quickly and presented well on a beautiful hand made, one of a kind, art piece of a plate. Huge portion. Three sausage links, two eggs, two slices of bread and a good portion of homemade hash... More

My entire family keep returning for the same thing on this menu...quiche! Adore the spinach quiche but Mom says the bacon one is great too....just wish they had softer, lower seated chairs.

Nice place, clean & more trendy then most places in Creston. Ordered sandwich to go but from what I saw on tables Breakfasts looked huge & amazing. Americano was really good.

The food here can be wonderful, or not so much. Hours of operation are unpredictable, and often closes very early.

We stopped at the Caffe for a leisurely breakfast on our vacation. The staff knew all the locals by name, were friendly to everyone. The coffee was excellent, and breakfast was great. Hubby had his usual bacon and eggs, I opted for French Toast. Both meals were great. We'll be stopping in again on our next trip through Creston.

Stopped in for breakfast. The service was fast, the food was hot and tasty, and the coffee was very good - with timely refills. Easy access on the main street.

We came on a rainy Saturday morning before 10 for rake out coffee. The place is funky and very clean.

It felt as going back in time when we entered this cafe for breakfast. We ordered an old fashioned traditional breakfast eggs, scrambled, sunny side up, grilled tomatoes, toast, bacon and a big coffee. It was great! We got free refills of the coffee. Very friendly atmosphere and not much waiting time!

My wife and I shared eggs bene and a fruit bowl. They split the orders in the kitchen and our breakfast arrived plated for each of us (no messy sharing the orders at the table). Just a little touch but it felt like they were going the extra mile! Very enjoyable meal!

Been here on a number of visits to Creston and have never been disappointed. On this latest visit, the coffee was exceptional. And as always the food was great. Good service, great food, what more can you ask for.
