Toni's Courtyard is by far one of the best cafes I have ever had the privilege of eating at. The service is phenomenal, the atmosphere is cozy, and the food is WOW! They never disappoint.

Without a doubt Tony's is the best for Breakfast andLunch. We have tried the entire menu, and there is only winners. For breakfast the egg Benedict is great, and for lunch it is without a doubt the Ruben. The service has always been great, and the specials are wonderful. You could not ask for any more.

Well deserving of #1 rating on TripAdvisor. Very reasonably priced, good service and great food. Both my companion and I chose the breakfast special where you pick three items -- I went with eggs, bacon and oatmeal, adding cranberries. He chose eggs, bacon and pumpkin bread. The bacon was perfect and the pumpkin bread was moist and delicious. Wish we... More

We started our day and had breakfast at toni's, nice selection in the menu, good prices. Good coffee as well. Our waitress was Michelle which was very nice and friendly.

We ate the bison burger special and it was the absolute juiciest, tastiest burger ever. What a delight. Had the potato salad, which is something I normally do not eat, and it was scrumptious. Excellent service, atmospere, the carrot cake and various cookies were also yummy. We will be back next week. Highly recommended by !

I had lunch at Toni's yesterday. My Reuben was exactly as advertised - LOTS of lean pastrami, sauerkraut and Swiss grilled on marbled rye with a house side salad. I ordered the sandwich with mustard on the inside and thousand island on the side and it was delivered perfectly. My friend had the same with a bowl of broccoli cheddar... More

Toni's is a small place but has warm friendly service and they're willing to customize and make substitutions in their breakfast menu. Between the four of us we asked to substitute bacon for the potatoes, add tomatoes to a scramble, and substitute salad for the toast. We were all very happy with the quality and portion sizes. And the crispy... More

Went there for a Saturday morning breakfast after my run. The ambience was great, busy but not very noisy. The staff was very attentive with immediate service and very helpful advice. I ate the Californian egg scramble which was perfect: fresh ingredients, fluffy eggs, potatoes done the way I like with a very nice spicy salsa on the side. Since... More

Had an amazing breakfast with a huge portion to fill me up and on top of it all the staff offered really great service and loved the vibe of the place and visitors. Also, great to see an awareness of organic and local shopping!

Toni's is a favorite breakfast and/or lunch spots for Mercedians. Always friendly and welcoming, the food is good and the service great. The only negative might be the acoustics, when it's full it's hard to have a conversation with your companions. When the weather is nice the patio is a good alternative. I would recommend the oatmeal for breakfast, it's... More
