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

The menu was very interesting. We settled for two different types of eggs Benny- didn't go for other egg dishes. Hubby tried lamb hash as well. His biggest beefs were: not enough hollandaise, too much potato in the hash. Mine: tasted like everything was cooked too close together on flat/top. My home fries tasted like lamb and there was a...

Really good breakfast good potatoes large portions BUT service is rude, acts like they are doing you a huge favor to even look at you and they don't serve or refill coffee. Have to go to a side counter and get it yourself while your food gets cold. A shame the wait staff ruins it for the chef and owners.

I do not like to say something bad about a place that has good food, but after reading many reviews which have spanned years regarding the slow service, I had to speak up. If you know this is a problem, why can't it be fixed. I also couldn't believe that someone had exactly the same complaint as we regarding dirty... 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
