Other Information

Handicap Accessible: Yes


While trying to come up with an appropriate name for our restaurant, we thought of several clever and catchy ideas. After doing research on the building, we discovered it was built in 1899 by a man named Otto Sallman. His intent was to have a restaurant. Due to financial difficulties, sadly, Otto was never able to open his restaurant, so we figured we would do it for him.

Otto’s Place is a Café and Lounge focusing on breakfast and lunch. We offer food options and an atmosphere not provided by other restaurants in Galena. We are developing an ever changing menu focusing on healthy home cooking, organic and vegetarian options, featuring local products where and when possible.

Otto's Place is an establishment where you can come and enjoy a meal, an appetizer, a piece of homemade dessert, a cup of coffee or glass of wine and enjoy the conversation of the people you are with, a quiet off Main Street alternative.
