When you "Google" or "Yelp" a restaurant in the small town of Chester, California, what restaurant comes to mind? Kopper Kettle Cafe, of course, as they're the best-known restaurant in town.  As I was passing through town, I just HAD to pay a visit to Kopper Kettle Cafe, so I could add my input, as a dedicated "foodie," and webmaster, and to see what the restaurant was all about...

Photo:  The sign and the motto of the restaurant read, "Fine Homemade Cookin'," and that's a good reason to visit Kopper Kettle Cafe, in Chester.  

Photo:  As you walk inside the restaurant, you're greeted by friendly Candice, who says, "sit anywhere."  The restaurant offers a mixture of booths, tables, and counter seating, and the "specials" board greets you as you enter. When I dine alone, I prefer to sit at the counter, so on this August morning, I sat myself at the first stool, visible in the center of the photo.

Photo:  On this early Monday morning, I was able to watch the two female wait staff in action, talking to the cook through the window into the kitchen.  I love candid photos!

Photo:  Kopper Kettle Cafe offers shaded, outdoor dining, but on this early Monday morning, August 18, 2014, nobody, including me, was dining outside.  

Photo:  I was amazed at the large, perhaps, 100-gallon aquarium of goldfish, and other freshwater fish that Kopper Kettle Cafe features in their dining room.  The big guy to the right of the photo was GIGANTIC, and I joked with my friendly server, Candice, that the fish is always fresh at Kopper Kettle Cafe.

Photo:  My friendly server, Candice, to the right, and another friendly lady - I didn't get her name - pose for my camera, after placing my wonderful breakfast on the counter.

Photo:  I smile, as Candice takes my photo, as I'm about ready to enjoy breakfast on this early Monday morning. The restaurant opens at 0700, and I arrived shortly after opening, as I was heading home from a 5-night camping trip in Lassen Volcanic National Park.

Photo:  Kopper Kettle Cafe is serious about breakfast, and their breakfast menu offers a wide array of breakfast favorites.  After reviewing their awesome menu, I narrowed my choice down to Polish Sausage, e.g., Kielbasa, eggs, hash brown potatoes, and my de facto standard of biscuits and gravy.  Quite a breakfast!  Not only was it delicious, but it was filling, but it kept me going for the rest of the day, as I made the three-hour drive back to Roseville.  I don't say anything about the breakfast, except to say it was delicious, as the photo says it all.

Yes, Kopper Kettle Cafe serves American "Diner Cusine" at it's best but that's what we're looking for, when you're visiting Chester, right?  From the friendly service, to the delicious food, Kopper Kettle Cafe treated me right, so ignore the negative reviews that have popped up on other web sites, and enjoy a delicious meal at Kopper Kettle Cafe, in Chester, CA...
