Great burger and sides for Rose Acres today.
My mom, Helen Peterson & I, enjoyed many a Sunday brunch after church, when I could make it home to Casey & take her. Loved it!
Do you know when liver and onions will be the special?
Joke of the Day at the Menlo Cafe
Great food for a great price! One hour left....go get yours, I got mine!!!
Max and I had lunch there Thursday. Wonderful food and we were both so full. We both had the Meat loaf special and it even came with desert. We will be going back.
Hi folks! I am one of the new owners of the Menlo Cafe along with my husband Scott, our daughter (Morgan Judkins Hale), and my parents (Linda Judkins and Timothy Judkins). We are excited for all the changes happening at the cafe. The remodeling is coming along great and we are shooting for a target opening date of September 17th. We are planning an open house right before we open so we can introduce ourselves and meet everyone. Watch for updates on opening day and for more details on the open house!! We are SO excited to get open and to meet everyone!! If you have questions or comments before then, do not hesitate to get in touch with one of us!
