Reviews

I love this place, amazing staff, great food, and a very relaxed atmosphere. If you're from out of town or haven't been here you're missing out on what I consider one of Bismarcks best restaurants for homestyle food.

Hands down one of my favorite breakfast spots anywhere, and I travel a lot. Anytime I'm in Bismarck I gotta stop at the Little Cottage!

Consistent food quality, reasonable prices, and absolutely packed full of regulars. The waitress can walk around and basically knows the orders of over 50 percent of the patrons before asking them.

Warm, bustling, neighborhood cafe. Fast, friendly service - hot, comforting American food. No wonder it has been Bismarck's favorite for years. Great place!!!

The service was good, the food was tasty! Everything was made quite promptly and correctly. It was fun to see regulars come in with their playful bandering to the staff members. It made for good feelings of being in an at home atmosphere. The place was pretty full however the seating was quite compact. The tables are fairly close to ... read more

This adorable little cafe is a great breakfast destination! The servers were so nice, and the customers all seem to know each other and were really friendly to us out-of-towners. The food was good - the caramel rolls are sooooo sweet but good (honestly, I prefer Cinnabon, but whatever). The place is charming and the coffee kept comin ... read more

Quiet little quaint cafe. Has a great vibe to the diner feel to it. Staff was super helpful and friendly. Food was delicious. We tried going to this place twice last week and both times it was packed. Took a later lunch today and got a window booth. You know it has got to be good if it is always packed with the locals.

Always great food when you can find a table. It is small so there is often a wait. I can't recommend the caramel rolls strongly enough. They are just like my grandma's and always fresh. Also I recommend the biscuits and gravy if you go before 11.

My husband and I were on a road trip and we stopped here for breakfast. I ordered oatmeal and an English muffin and my husband ordered two eggs, hash browns and white toast. The food was good, although the eggs were harder than ordered. The place is small and tight. The service was good.

Incredible find in this small town. Food quality is best I have ever had at any dinner and I have been all over the nation. Always hot and fresh.

We went there three times during our 9 day stay in the area. The menu had a little something for everyone but we were there for the Carmel rolls. My humble opinion is that they have the best rolls in Bismarck and Mandan. Oh who am I trying to kid, they are the best of anywhere I've been. Everything else we ate was good too.They have ... read more

Another one of those places that you must visit when coming to Bismarck. The entire staff is so friendly! It's like walking into moms house after being gone for months.

Nice little restaurant. Food is like what you would expect from a little locally owned place (I assume it is anyway)-pretty tasty, a few healthy options and a lot of not so healthy ones. The service is very good and they have tons of regular customers. It is geared toward an older crowd to be sure, and you proabably wouldn't want to ... read more

Used to enjoy the Little Cottage when I lived here. Now I am happy to go back when I visit…especially when they have Caramel Rolls. The rolls literally melt in your mouth. The staff were prompt & friendly as always.
