Midwest Living Review

Kim Schneider
This classic breakfast and lunch spot kicks diner fare up a notch with homemade biscuits and gravy, fresh baked breads and omelets served 14 ways.

Come prepared with cash for breakfast at the Villager Restaurant in Lewiston, and that's not because prices are steep -- far from it. Their Timber Town breakfast (three huge biscuits topped with specialty gravy and extra sausage patties) runs $9.95, and you can get a lighter order of one biscuit with gravy for $3.95 and hearty three-egg omelettes run $6.75. But they don't accept credit or debit cards. Owner-chef Bob DeVos says the biscuits and gravy are the most popular menu item, even making their way onto a local television food segment. While he won't divulge the secret recipe, he owes the popularity to the homemade biscuits and high-end meats from Plath's in Rogers City. Omelettes come 14 ways, with even more options like Hawaiian or mushroom on weekends. Pancakes are hearty and creative, too, covering a whole plate and available plain or stuffed with blueberries, nuts or chocolate chips. Even the toast is a treat, baked on-site and sold in the attached bakery. For the ultimate small-town friendly diner experience, take one of the 12 counter seats and chat with friendly chef Bob and wife Amy as they work in the open kitchen.
