We invite you to Chickadee Cottage where you will enjoy our tradition of prompt friendly service, reasonable prices, and taste tempting homemade foods in a restaurant with a true neighorhhood feel.

Chickadee Cottage is the best place to start the day with a traditional BREAKFAST or one of our special omelets.  SUNDAY FAMILY BREAKFAST is always all you care to eat, highlighting Joan’s homemade cinnamon rolls just out of the oven.

LUNCHTIME is a treat at the Chickadee Cottage, where our kitchen works overtime to bring the best to you every day.  Great care is taken to prepare our homemade salads, soups, lasagna, ala king and every one of our specialized dishes.  You'll always find fresh made DESSERT or Bridgeman's Ice Cream to top off the perfect lunch.  Want to enjoy a picnic on the shores of Lake Pepin?  Try our TAKEOUT menu.  We're just a short walk away to the Most Beautiful Spot on the Mississippi!"



It’s no wonder that Chickadee Cottage has become an institution over the years. For seventeen seasons we have welcomed guests to our front door. Our delicious foods and charming atmosphere have attracted travelers to stop and enjoy a special retreat along the “Great River Road”.
