I have tried the Eastlake Cafe 6 times now because I live just right around the corner. Their food is not bad however it isn't anything that really wants to draw me to make it my local go to spot. The service is lacking and many times they never come back to check and see if your meal is prepared... More

I had the Healthy Multi-Grain Pancakes–granola, raisins, bananas, cinnamon. It was absolutely delightful, flavorful and impossible to finish even 3/4. Way too much food, but entirely worth the trip. My partner ordered the Fruitopia – Choice of bananas or blueberries or strawberries (in season) . Wow, another great find with fresh berries. There is dining inside and if you select,... More

Excellent menu and daily specials. Outdoor seating is under some beautiful trees. Service was very good. I did not like the fancy creams they had on the table to add to my coffee, so they immediately brought me milk in a pretty container. Two waitresses took care of our needs. Price was higher than we are use to, but sometimes... More

I have now on 3 different occasions taken a group of friends there; both for breakfast and for lunch. I think it's a cute place and it offers a very nice menu with lots of choices. I particularly like the breakfast menu. The food itself is pretty good but where lies the problem is how rude they treat their patrons.... More

Great breakfast/lunch. Nice menu and lots to choose from; good service. Create a custom omelet or order one from the menu. The coffee was excellent during the first visit, but not so on the second visit. The eggs Benedict are OK, home fries are deep fried. Nice staff; dine in or out.

Sevice was slow and a little odd. Way over priced for a quick lunch. But the patio is nice and sunny.

I've been stopping here for lunch and late breakfast for longer than I can remember - whenever I'm on this side of Tampa Bay. The menu and prices are average, but the both the quality and quantity is great. I've always found the service to be friendly and attentive. I'll keep coming back.

A neighborhood restaurant, this restaurant offers breakfast and lunch daily. The food is good although the service is sometimes a little slow if they are busy. This restaurant has won awards.

We have been to this restaurant about 2 years ago and it was great but on this trip 3 weeks ago it was horrible. We sat outside and the server was rude and actually offered little service. We ordered coffee, Bloody Marys, Keish and a veggie omelet. The coffee was good, the Blody Mary was more hot sauce than anything,... More

Reasonable prices, combined with generous portion sizes of quality breakfast and lunch entrees, has kept it on our frequent dining list. The decor is a bit stodgy, but the patio is quaint. It's hidden in a strip mall, so the view isn't exactly outstanding, but it's all about the food.
