Though Renee's has been mentioned to me before, my journeys through Black Rock have been limited these past few months. Fortunately, we found our way to the little cafe on a leafing expedition Sunday, right at lunchtime. One of the signs outside says Cafe, the other says Restaurant, neither actually says Renee's, but that's all right, too.
Our waitress shared with us a board full of specials, including three "meat" items and a whole spread of vegetables, along with homemade chili and a list of available pies. We made our selections and chatted a bit.
We had thought about the kid's meal for Hunter, but a single chicken strip and French fries didn't seem like much. I shouldn't have worried. She ordered the lunch special and got the chicken strips, which were hand-breaded and enormous. She also chose for her sides coleslaw and corn-on-the-cob, and when told how
At one point, one of the lovely ladies on the staff walked through and admonished us all to have the blackberry cobbler that had just come from the oven, but I realized on trying to stand that even though I hadn't quite made it through my plate, I didn't have room. Next time, I sure will, if I don't succumb to the homemade Snicker bar pie.
One more note. Map directions are funky. This restaurant is located just west of the Black River on US 63, at the intersection with Highway 117, across from the gas station.
