Lunch with the family

We had a large table for lunch with reservations. We were seated immediately. The table was a large booth with chairs, very nice. Our server was prompt and professional. Our drink order taken right away, on to the food. We had burgers, chicken salad, salmon. All food was delish and plenty of... read more

Not what you would expect from a local bakery. Unique pairings of fresh vegetables and wonderful bakery items to create mouth watering choices. Never had such a wonderful pairing with kale and beets in a salad. Warm chocolate chip cookies for dessert were just the perfect topping.

Dropped in here for breakfast with my wife on the way to a doctor's appointment (Asthma not gastroenterology!). The food was awful. The coffee was awful and cold. Nobody cared. Why don't they close the place down they would be doing themselves and everybody else a favor! The bacon was tasteless and underdone. We had to send it back for... More

We walked over to the Village from our hotel and discovered the Mayfield bakery for breakfast. The quality of the food was great, nice sized servings and the staff attentive. It also has a true bakery on site for breads rolls & etc... If you are planning to eat at the restaurant as we did, make reservations - its is... More

It was fifteen dollars and had one small piece of toast for the plate. hmmmm? I don't mine paying the 15 dollars, but I think another piece of toast would round it... More

Mayfield is nicely decorated and had a good fresh menu for breakfast. Location is good and there is plenty of parking in the strip mall. Service is very friendly and the space allows for quiet conversations, at least early in the morning. I had an omelette which was quite good and well seasoned. Would definitely schedule a meeting here again.

Easy going, clean and friendly cafe in Town and Country Square. Fresh strawberry lemonade is just one of the refreshing beverages! Service was terrific and atmosphere alive and hopping!
