The Sunday special was Prime Rib Dinner, it was great, cooked to perfection, accompanied by a nice salad and baked... More

Feel free to go to the chain restaurant with the clown or the king or whatever; for me there's joy in finding a local ma and pa restaurant where they take good care of customers and feed you well. If you're like me, you'll love the Sunset Cafe. Clean, comfortable and friendly is the beginning and their excellent food takes... More

Great place to stop while traveling I-90. Every staff person was very friendly and helpful. And they have portion sizes for all levels of appetite. Breakfast was hot, fresh and quite good. Even took in allergy needs. Will definitely be back.

Server brought our salads in the usual time. About two minutes later our waitress brought our prime rib and fish dinners and set them on the table. My wife remarked... More

I had to redo my review as for some reason it accidentally posted with only 3 rating when it was meant to have 5. In any case, I stopped by on our trip to get my favorite caramel apple pie. Unfortunately, they were out, but had big slices of cheesecake, to chocolate cake. The family wanted dessert after dinner so... More

My husband and I went in for breakfast on a Sunday at around 11 am. It took a long time to get someone to bring over a menu and to ask if we wanted coffee. I noticed that another table, seated sometime after us, was asked immediately if they wanted coffee. We ordered scrambled eggs. We got fried eggs. The... More

Great Food! Breakfast was fast and fresh. We had eggs benedict and they easily took our specific requests for changes.
