I ate here 5 years ago when I was visiting my daughter and it was the best pancake experience I have every had in my entire life! When I crave pancakes these are the ones I want. Nothing has come close to these pancakes. I pray this place opens back up. It would be a real shame to lose such an amazing and unmatched representation of breakfast food done with excellence.

I haven't came in awhile but i used to go a lot pre pandemic. This place is great for brunch and lunch! Prices and portions are very well matched and everything tastes great. You can see them cookin and working hard, I always get the steak and eggs. Steaks are all season'd in house and made to order. Eggs Benedict is spot on too, with their house made hollandaise sauce.

Great place to eat and friendly staff! We were greeted right as we walked in. Even though it was 25 minutes before closing, they didn't mind. Food was fresh and delicious. Prices are great and desserts are delicious too! Kristina our server was wonderful and made sure we had everything we needed. You can't pass this place up! Plus, breakfast is served all day.

Small town diner serving basic American Food in Oelwein, Iowa. While they no longer serve Iowa's Best Cinnamon Roll (that was in the 1980's) they do serve up basic and tasty breakfast, lunch and supper. I was in town for the funeral of a long time family friend who ate many meals over the years at the Country Cottage. We decided to go out for breakfast on Friday morning as an homage to Darwin. Mom ordered the French Toast special with sausage, Rick had the French Toast with two eggs over easy and bacon, and I ordered the Scrambled Mess - a delicious blend of "all the veggies" (tomato, mushroom, green pepper, onion), diced ham, hashbrowns and scrambled eggs, all held together with one slice of American cheese and one slice of Swiss cheese, accompanied by whole wheat toast. The French Toast was declared tender and well done by both Mom and Rick. Accompanied by a generous portion of whipped butter and your own mini-pitcher of maple syrup. Rick's eggs were done perfectly - and appeared to be Jumbo eggs - instead of the extra large we are used to getting. My scrambled mess was cooked just right - the hash browns crispy, the veggies soft but not soggy. Coffee is refilled frequently. We agreed that we will now make Country Cottage a regular trip on our visits to Oelwein - not only to remember Darwin, but to enjoy some good Iowa food.

Great ambiance, fast and friendly service, and amazing food. It has a classic/throw back feel to it. Easy parking too.

Just thought about this little restaurant today. I had a chance to visit this diner in July 2019 right before I left the Bay Area, and it certainly was one of my best memories. The owner offered one of the most awesome services I've ever had in my life, and their signature cheesecake is such a delight. I look forward to enjoy their delicious cheesecakes in the future.

This restaurant is the one I always prefer. I eat in many restaurants but to this restaurant I go the most. The stuff is very cordial and the cuisine they cook is so tasty. I would always prefer to have a good dinner here. I highly recommend this place.

A delightful sort of "greasy spoon" kind of place as some might call it. The place is small and from what I can tell very accustomed to being busy. The cooks have their game together and crank out food as fast as possible without jeopardizing the food. I had and avocado and bacon omelette with hash browns. It's simple honest breakfast, no tricks. I dig it.

Loved the French toast!!!!!!! And they have fresh squeezed orange juice! French toast took about 15 min to cook (it was slow due to pandemic). Glad I satisfied my sweet craving here!

Delicious food and great service! The gentleman taking orders was funny. We got the monte critso and the bacon avocado eggs Benedict and both were sooooo food. The best part was the Japanese cheese cake! Will definitely be going back

Just stopped in to ask for a water bottle fill. They were way friendly about it, thought that was nice. :-)

This place is amazing and under-rated. The food is excellent (I ordered the avocado toaast and mushroom spinach omelette with rye bread and really enjjoyed the meal. You can tell the chef uses quality ingredients), the owner is a very, welcoming nice lady who came to check whether I was happy with the meal, which of course I was, otherwise we wouldn't be here. Definitely check this place out, especialy if you're in the brunch mood!
