Midwest Living Review

Laura Billingsley
This basic American small-town cafe serves hearty, simple fare for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

One step inside Midtown Cafe on the Newton square and you might think you’ve been transported back to Grandma's house. That is, if your grandma had a country-style kitchen with lace curtains and walls covered in Americana-themed decoration—posters, flags and painted stars.

Midtown bustles during breakfast with locals of all ages enjoying biscuits and gravy, signature omelets and hash browns with cheese (breakfast items $5 to $9). Lunch options include tenderloins, grilled cheese sandwiches and burgers; dinner offers chopped steak, liver and onions, and chicken strips (all in a $7 to $12 range). Some folks stop in just to sit at the counter for coffee and a piece of pie. The food isn't anything fancy, but it is satisfying, well prepared and served with a smile.
