Lovely outdoor brunch

Small and tidy, this cafe serves excellent breakfast and brunch for a fair price. Their menu has some creativity to it while offering the expected items as well. Good service. Nice covered outdoor seating.

You wouldn't expect such a fine place in this location but the food is great and so is the service. Amazing French toast, and excellent other breakfast choices. Dinners are good too - tasty, fresh, good portions. Great value.

This place will fool you if you drive by. It's small, and located under a Travelodge motel. But everything the chef turns out here seems to be made to order, and is delicious. Lamb Osso Bucco is a personal favorite, but the Mushroom Salad, and other salads are great as well. It's a small but eclectic menu. For the luch... More

We ate at the Metro Cafe for dinner and for breakfast. Both times the food was excellent and in our opinion also great value. Additionally the staff is very friendly. We never had the feeling that we needed to hurry up and finish eating and leave, which often can be the case.

This is one of the better restaurants around and you can't beat the quality/price ratio! I have tried all the items on the menu over the years and would order any again. They also have vegetarian dishes (Bernie, the chef, is a vegetarian - but you wouldn't know it). If the English Pea Humus is in season, order it.

A small place that one could easily overlook. That would be a mistake, as the Metro serves good fresh food, is a good value, and has a really good staff.

We have stayed at the Travelodge a couple times now and have ate at the METRO for breakfast and dinner. Good food and good portions. I have never left hungry. The food is freshly prepared and they bring in fresh bread from a bakery. They have been busy when we chose to eat, but they are working and not purposely... More

We have now stayed at the travel lodge next door to this diner on several occasions. The welcome and food are both very good. The quality stays the same from year to year. very good value.
