It is rare to find a breakfast location where the food is great, price is reasonable and portions are huge. During our recent visit to Brandon, this quickly became our favorite breakfast location. Highly recommend it.

We walked in and stood by the please wait to be seated sign. Everyone was busy. Someone was at the register, servers were running around with menus and food but no greeter. Finally one of the waitresses acknowledged us and found us a table. We sat and waited several more minutes for someone to come to our table. We gave... More

We went for breakfast and then food was great. The service on the other hand was very poor. We walked in an no one even said anything to us, after 5 minutes someone sat us. The waitress never checked on us, I asked for hot sauce she never brought it. I had to ask the busboy for it and asked... More

The quality of the food and the portion size is perfect. Efficient friendly service. Free cookie. Prices are good for the amount of food. Definitely a favorite.

Like many of the review say, don't let the shopping center deter you. It's an older strip mall and and the restaurant itself is a little dated. However, our food and our service was great! The fish tacos were super fresh and delicious. The tea was clearly fresh brewed in fresh pots. Everything was very good. We got in and... More

My husband, myself, and a friend of ours went to the Recipe Box for breakfast the other day after reading some good reviews on Yelp and TripAdvisor. The menu looked like it had a good variety of options as well. We went on a Sunday morning at about 10:00 a.m. The wait wasn't terribly long, probably 20 minutes. Our waitress... More

WOW! We were looking for a real breakfast since our hotel did not have anything worth eating. My wife did a search for local diner for breakfast, and found this place. We decided to try it...it was great. The food was good & so was the service.

Always busy on the weekends and especially after church you can always get a great breakfast and large portions here. The staff is friendly and wait time is manageable most of the time.
