The food was quick, fresh & tasty. The baked goods were a tempting display. Many stopped on their way... read more

The food here was great and plentiful. Went on three times in two days, awesome service each time. It's my new breakfast spot for Ft. Lauderdale.

Called for breakfast and the retro American dinner experience. Breakfast was great and loads to choose from, never realised there was so many ways a egg could be done. Expected Fonz to be in the 'office' Great breakfast in a great setting.

The only reason we visited was because we were there for a time share thing and this is where they gave us vouchers to eat. Wasn't expecting much but was pleasently suprised. First, the waitres, Stacy, was wonderful. She was very pleasant and helped guide us through the extensive menu. When the food came, it was way above average. This... More

The hostess was not busy so she sat there on her phone for a while until we asked to be seated. Then she gave us attitude and after seating us spent a few minutes telling the customer seated behind us how much she hated her job. If that wasn't unpleasant then we had a server who could not have been... More

Look no further. ...this is the best breakfast for a reasonable price. Get a little or a lot. Specials and more. Variety !!! The portions are generous. You will not be disappointed.

We ate here twice on our week long trip; coming and going to the airport. It is so easy to find and parking is free. First trip was lunch and I had a simple thing of wonder called a Lester's Melt with Pastrami and Swiss on Rye. The pastrami was thicker compared to what I've had in say a classic... More

We had just arrived by air to Fort Lauderdale and were hungry for a mid afternoon snack. We were directed to Lester's by our hotel staff. OMG their large dessert selection is wonderful, and my choice of deep dish apple pie alamode was superb. We did not get a chance to eat a meal, but looking around at the number... More
