On a Friday afternoon, we drove the Driftless Area Scenic Byway to the River Bluff Scenic Byway to Guttenberg; we took the Great River Road along the Mississippi on the way back home. Guttenberg is a historic German Catholic town, so many of the buildings are stone and timber. The Picket Fence is small and cozy, with brown gingerbread cookie curtains and tchotchkes, such as an ISU apron (Go, Cyclones!), for sale. There is a pie case; we admired the array. The young waitress brought us water and strong iced tea as we perused the menu, which is on the table, along with laminated pig placemats. Scout ordered the Reuben sandwich with chips; I, the Pig in the Garden (BLT) with bowtie pasta salad. The sandwiches were good; I would have preferred the promised thick slice of tomato instead of two thin slices, but the cottage bacon was delicious. There was a family group, possibly in town for a wedding, and they commented as their food was served: "Yum!" "Homemade noodles!" "'Fresh baked bread,' she said." The owner and caterer Jane seemed to know the family and invited them to try the pie. They did not, so we did: Scout had the apple and caramel with a scoop of vanilla ice cream; I, the strawberry-rhubarb. The homemade pie was good and probably as billed, "the best in Guttenberg." The sides are set with each sandwich, and we did not ask to substitute for potato salad or German potato salad--Scout left his chips, which is uncharacteristic. The bowtie salad was sweet and creamy--it was served in a small cup, which was good. All sandwiches and sides cost $6.49, which seems quirky; pie is $4.00 with ice cream and $3.50 without. We asked Jane for sights to see, and she pointed to the import store across the street. While I looked at the decor and gift items, Scout found the hidden Fish Shack--it is rustic and authentic and the owner serves fish from the River on which it sits. Next time!

Very simple, delicious, friendly, and inexpensive place to stop for breakfast while traveling through the area. Small-town friendly atmosphere. My husband and I are always on the lookout for places like this. This one is a true gem. Also, you can stop and sit in the chair former President Obama sat in if you want to. :)

I stopped in for lunch when passing through town. It is a nice environment. You order and pay at the counter. I had the Cuban with the mushroom soup. The soup was great, and I would have loved to have more. The cup was very small. The Cuban was disappointing. There were no pickles, even though they were listed on the menu, and even though a Cuban always has pickles, and just one very small piece of ham and another small piece of pork. I have never had a skimpier sandwich. The sandwich was so pressed it was impossible to cut with the silverware they provided. I would have said something but the lady working there never came back to check on me, and she seemed so busy that I didn't want to bother her. Other things on the menu might be better, but I would never order the Cuban again. So sorry to hear about your experience at Kaffee. Please let us make it up to you with the service and food you deserve.
Previously, the Mississippi Cafe, this restaurant has new owners and is reopened as Reed's. The Sunday brunch was good and offered a large variety of foods. There is an omelet stand and waffle stand separate from the buffet line available upon request. The view of the Mississippi is beautiful! It's great to have this spot running again!
