A nice little café in downtown Rensselaer with friendly staff, good food, and affordable prices. This is a place where the locals gather to solve the world's problems, which works once in a while. :-)

Amazing home style food! Went with a large group of out of town people. 8 total; and were welcomed like family. Served fast and friendly and our drinks were kept full the entire time. Loved the home style food! But know in advance; this is a cash only establishment!
