Midwest Living Review
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.
