Julie's Home Style Cafe in Oskaloosa, Iowa
Location: 216 S Market in Oskaloosa about sixty miles from Des Moines.
Directions: Market St in Highway 63 just south of the main drag through Oskaloosa.
Price: $5.00 with a bag of chips.
Also on the menu: the lunch menu is hot beef and tenderloins and a daily special then a dessert board. The breakfast menu includes bowls of cereal and the classic diner eggs and bacon breakfasts.
Service: It was table service when I stopped in for lunch. I should not that they are only open until 1:30 on weekdays and close after breakfast at ten on Saturday.
Ambiance: This is an old diner that hasn't been redone in a long time with wood paneling and an old counter and booths for seating.
Final thoughts: The signage and uniforms for Julie's Cafe seem to emphasize the hot beef sandwich and the pies. I think I would try one of those next time I am in Oskaloosa. This place seems to attract lots of locals for its breakfasts too.
