A sweet little diner in a strip mall. Excellent service by friendly staff. An affordable diner with delicious sandwiches ( Reuben with yummy fries), and soups (Turkey Vegetable). Bonus: seeing customers decked out in green and one Oriole's fan!

I traveled to Brandon for an appointment and I had 90 minutes to kill. I would be eating alone since my brother was working on his "Honey Do List". I had read about Recipe Box on Trip Advisor and decided to check it out. I was greeted by friendly staff and decided to sit at the counter. While I was... More

We have breakfast almost every Saturday morning. Great price & excellent food. Full menu or can order in half portions. Get there before 9 am to beat the crowd. Very, very popular.

We do not have much of a selection for a good breakfast place out here so when my daughter invited me out, I jumped on it. This place makes really good breakfasts. I had the Eggs Benedict and my daughter had the French toast. The food was outstanding. The people were great. I'm coming back.

The spinach pie was literally half a plate. The pancakes were overlapping the plate. Biggest pancakes of any restaraunt we have ate at for three years. We waited less than 5 mins to get seated. Had our food served in five minutes, hot, fresh, and big. You better be hungry, cause the portions are huge. The pancakes are very fluffy... More

A week later again but this time it was for lunch, I had a burger well done, the service was slightly slow but I got my burger well done, it... More

It's everything you hope and expect it to be. Cute little place tucked into a strip center. You'll be pleasantly surprised when you walk in. You're always greeted by a friendly and helpful staff. The menu has all the breakfast choices you want and some you don't expect. Huge, fluffy pancakes. The lunch menu has a nice variety. They only... More

I have been wanting to stop by this local place and today I finally made it. I think it is typically a great sign when a breakfast place is super busy on a Sunday at 8:30am. It was everything I hoped for: great food, fast service without feeling rushed, and a local feel. We will be back!
