The Pelican Café is a good place to go if you want a lot of food for your money. The service is efficient and pleasant. You'll rarely have an empty cup of coffee or tea. The taste of the food is rather on the bland side, but does not taste bad. Make sure you arrive at the Pelican very hungry,... More

Some of the best food we've ran across in a while. We had the taco skillet & it was awesome! Too much food for me to finish, but it was a nice, clean little place. The waitress was awesome, & the cooks were very nice! I would say, put on your must eat at list, at least several times!

I'd eaten here once before and wasn't all that impressed, but went back recently and had to change my opinion on some stuff. Can't say why, but I ordered the meatloaf. Portions were large, and the meatloaf was great. The meal came with a few side dishes, and the only complaint I can offer is that the mashed potatoes were... More

We heard the breakfasts were good here. It was good, but let's face it, this is a trucks stop with deer horns all over the walls.

We used to be at the Pelican Truckstop, but now bought our own little café. We serve breakfast, lunch and dinner all day. We have pies, cakes and Wilcoxin's ice cream. Come in, sit down and enjoy!
