Finalist for Brunch
Old fashioned, rib-sticking country cooking: Big Food, worth waiting for. Corned beef and other sandwiches, salads, burgers, omelets, scrambles and breakfast potatoes, chicken fried steak, biscuits, battleship-sized cinnamon rolls. Nice "howdy neighbor" atmosphere adds appeal.

Best Breakfast Top 3 Winner

A Saturday morning brunch can satisfy appetites for the weekend. Unhurried, bountiful breakfasts feature omelettes (the Maltby is a huge affair, stuffed with assorted vegetables, ham cubes and even pieces of roast beef). Good new potatoes, old-fashioned oatmeal and thick slices of French toast round out the menu. The cafe's renowned cinnamon rolls are the size of bread loaves, big enough to fill at least two bellies.
