We've been eating at the family owned Uptown Cafe for nearly 30 years. Everything on the ample menu is made fresh daily onsite. Prices are reasonable and portions are very generous.Love the breakfast choices, especially the skillets and Crepes (breakfast is available all day). Soups are homemade and some of the best I've ever eaten (soup is included with most... More

Co-workers brought me here. Nice place and we seemed to miss lunch rush. Prompt and solid service. I went for breakfast and had plenty of choices. Ordered the country skillet which was a good proportion, fresh potatoes, well seasoned sausage, and flowing coffee. I'll be back when in area. Per card open 6:00AM to 3:00 PM

This restaurant's menu has so many choices, including many fresh and healthy options, which is usually lacking at breakfast restaurants. I had a hard time choosing between all of the egg-white omelet options and the many veggie combinations they offer. Everything was great, including the service. On our next visit to AH, we will be back!!

Uptown is close to my residence and convenient in that way. However, if I were to move I would have to come back. It is family-owned and operated and has that atmosphere. The service is wonderful and the menu has plenty to choose from. Great for breakfast but can get packed. The wait is never long though, ~10 minutes.

I really like the portion size of food on the plate. It is always very fresh. The place is always packed, so I can't tell you when the best time to get there is. Esp. on the weekends. I frequent this place often and have never had a bad experience.

It's good diner food here, but nothing to go out of your way for. If you're in the neighborhood, stop by....especially if you can't get into Egg Harbor.

Uptown cafe is fantastic! Their buttermilk pancakes are better than anywhere! We used to live in Arlington and went there all the time. We now moved 45 minutes south of there, and we still go back as much as we can!

My husband and I have been going to Uptown for years, and we can't get enough of it. The food is absolutely delicious, generous in portions, and the service is quick and friendly. It's the "Cheers" of brunch spots, and feels like home to walk in the door and be greeted friends that feel more like family. The breakfast menu... More
