This is the kind of place where there are often a lot of older people and where the waitresses all seem to know their names. The decor looks like something between log cabin comfy and your grandma's house. It is not overly decorated, but has that homestyle flair. Seating is a mixture of both booths and tables and I think there might even be a counter. They also have a lounge where food and drinks are served.
My friend and I sat a a booth by the window and ordered off the extensive menu. One thing I liked about the menu was the choice of healthy sides, like tomatoes, cottage cheese, and applesauce in addition to regular side dishes you'd normally find.
I ordered a breakfast sandwich and my friend ordered a large breakfast that included pancakes, eggs, a meat choice and hashbrowns. She also ordered a side of potato skins because she can never turn down potato skins if they are on the menu.
Our food came out pretty quickly and I was astounded a the amount of food! My sandwich was just on the normal size, but the pancakes were the plate sized type, the hashbrowns were generous, and the potato skins...well, let's just say there must have been 3-4 potatoes skinned for that pile of cheesy, potato goodness!
Some items are clearly made in house, like the potato skins, while others are definitely straight from the restaurant supplier, like the pancake syrup that comes in individual plastic containers. The food is good, even if it is just regular pancake house fare.
I would definitely go back to Schroeder's. It isn't a trendy place, but it has a variety of hearty breakfast options and reasonable prices ($6-$9 range) and I like that it is a locally owned and operated restaurant.
