Welcome to Crystal Cafe of Iola

Our cafe is located in the quaint village of Iola, WI. If you want honest to goodness home cooking from scratch you'll find it here. So join us, you'll be treated like family from the moment you come through the door.

It all started a long time ago (50+ years) when Judy's mother Ann purchased the Crystal Cafe in Iola. She was a natural born cook- serving only the highest quality homemade foods - including everybody's favorite: her pies. Her secret: "it's all in the feel of the dough" - something that takes a lot of practice to be sure.

Today Judith Bolier and her daughter Jennifer Schustek carry on the tradition and maintain the same high standards set forth by Ann. In today's world homemade food can be a thing of the past. But at the Crystal Cafe they take pride in serving only food that's start to finish homemade with all natural ingredients.  Their specialty, pie making seems to be becoming a lost art, but not here. Customers rave that Crystal Cafe pies are "to die for" and Judy and Jennifer ensure that experience is the same for all guests. All pies are made with a homemade, hand rolled crust to ensure tender and flaky perfection. Only all pure and natural ingredients are allowed: NEVER any preservatives and NEVER any canned fruit.

After 50+ years, this restaurant is still family owned and operated with the fourth generation now happily taking part. Just as it always is for family,  your place is set at our table and Judy, Jennifer and the staff of Crytsal Cafe are hoping to see you soon!
