This is a very quaint coffee and lunch location. They also serve dinner. It was very convenient to find, right on highway 61. I didn't have a beverage, but did enjoy a lunch of sandwich and French fries. Both tasted fine, nothing exciting. The rest...More

$15 to $20 for a crappy dinner no thank you, service was atrocious had the Whitefish guacamole and it was like licking a salt block. The only thing that looked good was the pasty. I will not be back.
