I went to this place for breakfast one morning expecting an average breakfast but was pleasantly surprised. The food and service were both good making for an all around enjoyable experience.

Need a great breakfast or lunch spot, this is it. Top notch food. Best buttermilk pancakes I've ever had! They have this grilled cheese and spinach sandwich that's crazy good. It's a small neighborhood cafe.

We went there for breakfast-as it was a favorite of my daughter's. Extensive breakfast menu with a Texmex flavor. The usual breakfast fare, but also many specials with chili, peppers and Mexican cheeses. The seating is very limited but that also adds to the small town atmosphere. The portions are very large- so splitting may keep left-overs to a minimum-ask... More

A little bit of a squeeze but the food is excellent and there is a very wide choice. Café attracts people from all walks of life - so not just the chattering Northshore set.

Unique menu chalk board with a great variety of food options. From Pumpkin bread french toast, chorizo quesadilla, omelettes, hamburgers, soup and much more. Our food was really good. Everyone at my table loved their lunch! This cafe is very small, personable and beautifully decorated. It is cash only.

Wonderful little place -emphasis on the little. Try going off hours and make sure to catch closing times. Food is really good. Pancakes are wonderful but so is everything else. Lots of fun options. The turkey dill is still one of my favorites. Kids really welcomed and candy pancakes ar awesome.

The Original Pancake House had a line out the door, so our son suggested Green Bay Cafe for a late breakfast. Breakfast entrees were typical. The food was good and served hot. The restaurant was not crowded, but service was slow and waitress acted like she was doing us a favor. I was not impressed.

Thank Anola S
