Terrific Local Breakfast Spot

I'm not sure how we missed this place for so many years, but I'm delighted we found it. We've returned three times in two months. On a Sunday morning there is likely to be a wait, but the food is well worth it. We love the French toast, the omelettes and Joe's special. We'll have to go back... read more

We recently went on a very strict 1000 calorie a day diet. One of our last meals was at Baldies. The food is always delicious. It has a wonderful diner atmosphere if you like diner atmosphere which we do. Unfortunately we probably will not be eating there much more because calories after all are little measurements that tell how good... More

The staff is extremely friendly. I ordered the Greek salad and was surprised that it consisted mainly of bell pepper. At least half of it was peppers and the rest was cucumber and tomato. Tasted good, but I expected lettuce as well. My husband enjoyed his dinner though.

Poor service. Restaurant wasn't crowded but we only saw our server twice. Once to take our order than the next time to give us the bill. Food was nothing to brag about especially since I didn't get what I ordered. Won't be back for sure

I am a regular. Number 4 is good for breakfast. The burger is a good lunch, or the tuna melt. Dinner is the lamb shank. Do not miss this place. You will be sorry.

Once again, we found this local's favorite courtesy of Trip Advisor. We loved the friendly, energetic vibe and generous, tasty food. And wow--is the service FAST! If you're driving through the area and thinking about where to eat, we would definitely recommend a detour to this great little family-owned spot!
