It was soooo bad. I wanted to know what all the busy tables were all about and boy was I disappointed. Now just how bad can breakfast be? In this case, pretty bad. The sausages were cheap and greasy. The biscuit disappointing. The eggs almost inedible. I think we found a spot almost as bad as the venerable "Touch of... More

cowgirl cafe serves simple, tasty, traditional food in cozy eccentricity. the menu is eggs anyway you want and time-tested sandwich favorites. i prefer the cowgirl club: home roasted turkey, bacon, lettuce, and tomato with potatoes. i always take half to go since portions are huge. service is downhome friendly and efficient.

One of the specials was Huevos Rancheros and I ordered that. Very disappointing as there was some sort of pulled meat in the mix (and a lot of it),... More

The Cowgirl cafe is a special treat for Easterners and foreigners. Bring your camera in to shoot some pix of the Western-style decor and pose your little daughter with the life-sized statue of the eponymous Cowgirl. I had a good, big breakfast: Scrambled eggs and diced ham with an accompaniment of a huge biscuit and (surprisingly) brown, not white, gravy.... More
