Great food and wonderful people

We have been here on two different occasions, Brunch and Dinner. Both times we were blown away by the food. I am a picky egg eater and my eggs were done perfectly! 3 choices in home fries (cannot wait to go back to try the others). Homemade toast in different varieties. Blood orange mimosas were... read more

We were the second ones in early on a Friday evening, yet had to wait 45 min for two simple meals (a sandwich & fish n chips). Our waitress "disappeared" after taking our order, and never checked in to see how our food was or if we needed anything. Someone else delivered our food, which was slightly better than average....

We have been here many times. It is truly a great little place, especially for breakfast. It is always very busy Sunday morning; you might have to wait. But it is worth it.

Granted, the food was good, but... Service was lousy and slow in coming, the condiment & napkin container/bucket on the table had some dirty silverware in it along with a ketchup bottle that needed a wipe down, the server poured a refill of my water glass on me that was warm and need a redo, my guest had diet soda...

I often have breakfast here. It is very good. The Coffee is: weak, cold, and has no flavor, (dishwater). I would gladly pay more for a good hot cup of coffee.

Tucked away in Canton, CT my husband and I stumbled upon the Village Cafe and Bistro. There are so many wonderful breakfast choices, you can't go wrong. Come back again and again to try them all! Slept in too late? More in the mood for lunch food? We only just discovered their lunch menu, our fault not theirs. I must... More

We went to the Village Cafe and Bistro for breakfast this morning and it truly was a delicious discovery for me. My husband had been once before and had a positive experience, so he suggested going there for a breakfast meeting with friends. It's hidden away behind the Canton post office, but it certainly a bustling little place. I ordered... More

I have only had lunch here once. But when you want the best breakfast-- this is where I go, and I will admit to travelling and craving a great breakfast. The place is small and coffee is self serve ( maybe tea is also, but I don't drink either there). Unfortunately it is where people stand if there is a... More

Very good breakfast spot. The food and service are consistent each time. Food - Looks as good as it tastes. The Village offers your standard breakfast fare with a variety of pancakes and omelets, but they also have some unique specials. Service - It gets very busy in the morning, so arrive early. If you get there during a rush,... More

I've been here a few times and it's a toss up everytime. The chef clearly cares for his food but the portions vary in size from ample to not enough. The time to receive the meal also varies but now that I've been here several times it's almost always an hour wait for simple food. The staff is just slow.... More
