Busy but worth it. The Big Boy burrito was delicious. Also suggest a blueberry waffle. Great service in a quaint old home.

Breakfast was good, so was the service. Quaint place with good vibe. Busy early mornings. Food was freshly made- served quickly.

We were looking for a more ketogenic breakfast (with more protein and less carbs) -- all local recommendations mentioned Louise's for breakfast. We immediately met some local retired persons with their mini poodle enjoying their breakfast. The place is cozy with a homey interior, tables...More

Food and service = excellent!! We had a party of 20 people plus two young children ordering from the menu. We had two servers who were unflappable taking multiple orders. A wonderful experience. Thank you!
