We had to wait in line for an hour to get into this place but it was well worth it. Great, really homemade corn beef hash, thick perfectly cooked French toast, and eggs done to perfection. The bakery counter looked terrific but we were too full from breakfast to partake of the pastries. I found it interesting that they served... More

My husband and I enjoyed a quiet early breakfast here. Both food and service were excellent. The server, Susan, was overly friendly and cheerful- one who knew what one wanted without having to ask.

Return visit this year to Helen - and to Hofer's. We arrived early enough for breakfast, but waited until lunch was served. My husband loves their Pastrami on Rye and had Potato Salad as a side. I ordered their soup of the day - Corn Chowder - and a half-sandwich of Ham and Swiss on Rye. My 'half' sandwich was... More

Great breakfast if you can make it past the delicious baked goods in the displays! The best scrambled eggs I think I have ever tasted!

We stood in the line for 20 mins. just to told that we (only my husband & I) would have to wait "at least 15 mins longer to be seated". of course we left the place and I'm sure we will never return. There was a customer who told us that the 1st 20 mins. was worth the wait. We... More

We had a late lunch on Friday. Both service and food are excellent !! We had chicken cutlet, beef roll and German sausages, and a side order of potato salad. Yummy!! Better than the meal I had in Munich several years back. Couldn't skip dessert because it was awesome, especially the warm apple strudel. The bread pudding was great too,... More

when we got there the line was back to the deli case, the line moved quickly. There were many choices and the prices were reasonable and portions were a good size. I had the Min climber and my husband had the French Toast. We couldn't eat it all and our drink glasses were never empty. Tammy was great in meeting... More

I highly recommend the corned beef and hash and eggs. It comes with fresh fruit and a roll too. So good!

Very friendly place. Good breakfast. Cappuccino's are pricy for what you get. No real espresso machine. I'd go back to try the pastries.
