Super cute roadside café with amazing views of Bear Lake right across the street! My omelette and American potatoes rivaled those served in some of my favorite restaurants. My friend had grilled walleye which was cooked to perfection. Our waitress was super helpful, friendly and full of energy. Although we came right at closing time, and we stayed at least an hour, we were not rushed one bit. It was my friends birthday, and they even brought a large slice of delicious homemade chocolate cake to the table!! This is a one of a kind restaurant, where each customer is taken care of like family. Definitely a surprise and well worth a visit!
