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.

This restaurant is a little hard to find since it is tucked away in the second row of shops in a strip shopping area. There is also a bad GPS location shown for this restaurant in certain applications. My son and his wife had directions on their smart-phones that were taking them to 2 different places. We took the opportunity... More

This place has a wall of windows, so every seat is bright and cheerful. The menu had a big selection of lunch and breakfast items. Specials of the week were posted outside and on each table. The mahi mahi sandwich was very good, and the roast beef au jous was excellent. They serve packets of sugar in the raw -... More

Other than being hard to find for people from out of town, Although I prefer ethnic foods, I had a decent business lunch there. We both had sandwiches and fries and they were tasty. I had a tuna melt and had a choice of both bread type and cheese type. The service was friendly and prompt and we overstayed their... More

We ride our bikes here and eat breakfast outside. The food is good but nothing spectacular. Your basic breakfast place. Usually a little surprised when the bill comes..cost for breakfast seems a little high.

Our server was a bit inexperienced, but the food came quickly and was tasty. I'd bring others here for breakfast.

Took some out of town friends there for breakfast Sunday and everyone was very happy. Myself having worked in the restaurant business for many years I feel this restaurant does breakfast right. food is always served hot. Highly recommend it for breakfast.

Friendly staff, great food and you can bring your dog and sit outside. Specials seem to change every day and are often unique. We have been here several times and have had great food and service each time. Quickly becoming a family favorite.

Have been to the East Lake Cafe a few times, but do not care for the atmosphere indoors, and do not like to eat outdoors. It is a very small Restaurant with wooden tables and chairs. I ordered a Western Omelet that came with ingredients not usually in a Western Omelet, along with bread covered in honey butter that was... More
