Great first stop for coffee and breakfast right in the middle of town. Open for breakfast and lunch. Try the apple pancakes.

I always wanted to try this place on our yearly visits to Galena. Finally, I was able to eat there with an old friend and our kids (teenagers.) We were a bit disappointed in lack of flavor. The atmosphere was very cute though!

Want a real small town diner breakfast that has great food and reasonably priced? Try this place! We walked into a busy morning rush. They took our order quickly and everyone was very happy with their food. Will come back!

Diner standards with a relaxed casual atmosphere great for our weekend breakfast after Country Fair shopping. Something for everyone. Veggie omelet was great. Pancakes bigger than the plate.
