Big Y Cafe

Big Y Cafe on UrbanspoonSheepie had gone earlier for a pie and 2 cups of coffee which came about $8 USD and was upset on why it was so expensive.

We later went back together for breakfast where I ordered the Short Haul (indicated as ‘Lighter Breakfast for Seniors and Kids’) LOL. But I’m not really a breakfast person and we were betting on the large portions in America to fill me up, and the leftover for Sheepie. idearabbit-bigycafe3

Cuz this time, I and Sheepie had one cup each from a pot that the server goes around with to every table, and we were charged $2.99 USD in total…It was really terrible coffee, so it was pretty expensive and not working paying for… If Sheepie had checked his bill earlier to see what he had paid, we could have just gotten water…

The cafe apparently got its name from its original location, at the Y junction of highway 2 and 97, where it first opened in 1939 and was moved to it’s current location in 1984. They are committed to cooking with local ingredients, and home cooking from scratch. Their pie is supposedly World Famous home-made pie, but Sheepie didn’t really say anything about the pie itself…

It became pretty full though. I think it’s one of those places that locals and travelers passing by stop at. It’s got character, but pricey for the quality and value. Good location when you stay at the Wedge Mountain Inn next door, but wouldn’t go out of my way to go there.
