Klemm’s Kafe is a diner on Wells Street that it set up more like an old fashioned diner of yesteryear and has historic pictures of Fort Wayne on decorating its walls. They have been in business for over 35 years.
One quirky thing is the front door is locked and you have have to enter through the side door, but as the parking is to the side of the building it is convenient.
As you can see in the picture on the left, it has counter with a row of stools in front of the grill and to the right a few booths and tables. They do have overhead lights at the tables and the front windows lets in a lot of light but as you can see from the pictures it is not the most flattering light on food. Perhaps using daylight bulbs or a higher wattage could easily rectify that.
I got the Number 10, which is a half order of biscuits and gravy, two sausages and two eggs (I ordered them over hard) $5.45.
The biscuits had a nice texture and flavor and the gravy had small bits of sausage in a bechamel sauce and tasted good as well. The sausage patties were not overcooked, greasy or too spicy like some places. The eggs were over hard but not overdone, but I was surprised to see them combined together and would have preferred it if they had not been.
My guest had a breaded tenderloin for $4.25, which was very large and it was well cooked. He elected for an additional $2.50 to add a sides to the sandwich, but swapped out cottage cheese instead of slaw.
Service was prompt and friendly despite our arriving 15 minutes before closing and being there a little after that.
