We visited in Sept 2015 and received a nice welcome. We ordered Chinese food and were delighted with the food which was very tasty, the portions were large. We could not manage a dessert because we were full. Would recommend the Kopper Kettle without hesitation.

It's been a tradition to go to Kopper Kettle. The food is always tasty, portions large. We eat breakfast and we can go a whole day without thinking about anything to eat. It's good old homestyle cooking

The Kopper Kettle Cafe is one of those little-town-on-the-road jewels that can make you forget the hassle of a 1000 miles drive in a matter of minutes, just out of the tastiest food and the warm, home-style sweetness of the place. If you go to Chester or nearby, plan to make a stop there. You won't regret it.

We had a group of seven and they were able to quickly accommodate us on a busy Sunday morning. The service was very good and it seemed a well-run family business. Our omelets were delicious and so happy that that they had sour dough toast.

A great variety of different foods. A great salad to go with the entrees and friendly, helpful staff. The portions are good, the food is hot and tasty. I like the options for different types of food. The restaurant is quite clean and tidy. Never a bad meal here.

We had dinner here and ordered from their new Chinese menu. The food was pretty good, not your typical Chinese; it had a different twist to it. They were very busy and only had one waitress. Needless to say she was hurried and we understood. The place is a little run down, but the prices are reasonable.

This place is your typical neighborhood diner, except for the fact that they serve Chinese food. The wait staff seemed to know most of the people who came into the place. The service was friendly. Located in a small town, with few food options, the Kopper Kettle Cafe has a large menu and serves breakfast all day. We had eggs... More

we eat here when we come up to Lake Almanor and think they have some the best fish and chips we have ever had. Their tarter sauce is awesome and the employees are quite friendly and accommodating in our opinion!
