We were visiting the area and made a stop at this quaint little cafe. The food was amazing. The homemade bread & buns were delicious. Extremely friendly and courteous staff. A great little outside porch to enjoy the scenic view. Loved it!

My wife and I had lunch and a delicious, huge muffin at this little cafe and bakery. I had the bison burger. Very good! It's run by a sweet older lady who is wonderful and loves to chat with her customers. I highly recommend it....More

Finished running in LBL and replenished calories on the porch. Great biscuits and gravy, eggs, and fruit on the side.

We ate outside enjoying our breakfast casseroles. The staff was friendly and efficient. It was interesting to watch them haul pitchers of water out the door to water all of the plants. We took muffins for the road. None of us thought they were great...More

Fresh Foods; Breakfast & Lunch. Open from 8 a.m. - 2 p.m. Wednesday thru Sunday. They have THE BEST home made LOW FAT muffins I've ever tasted. You can order their muffins to be shipped anywhere as well. Delightful and moist...you cannot tell they are low fat at all. I've also had their Chicken Quesadila's; Wick (Roast Beef & Cheese on a home made roll); Foccacia; and everything they serve is very good. Fresh baked each day. I highly recommend this little bakery. Outside dining with a few tables indoors as well. They take all major credit cards. Located 3 miles from the north entrance to Land Between the Lakes National Recreation area. You can also buy a picnic basket lunch! I love it!
