Good breakfast

Some of the food is... um, for a more adventurous palate than mine, but there are lots of things that appeal. They often have really good seasonal specials such as pancake crepes or pancakes. Really good.

I love this place. We tend to go before or after church. Always busy. The food is really good. And if you get there before 11am, get the beignets. They are fantastic! I do love all the food. And they have a tree going thru one of the rooms. Its a neat place with lots of charm on the fox... More

Food excellent! Entrance needs work. Ambience unique! We had breakfast there which was excellent. the entrance has a handrail that may collapse if anyone put any stress on it. The tree in the dining area is unique to very few places we've been.

Visited this restaurant yesterday, 12/14/14. This restaurant is located in what appears to be an old green house. The sheer quantity of customers they push through this place is quite large. The staff were friendly, the decor very simple. We sat in a room with essentially a tree trunk and the bottom of a treehouse. The walls of the room... More

I come to the area once a year and always come to Benedicts's. This year we had a great server who accommodated any request we had. I had the cherry stuffed French toast, an indulgence I couldn't resist. My companions had omelets that they said were great. I like the variety the menu offers. The coffee is hot, strong and...

Benedicts was quaint and cozy. The restaurant's atmosphere is very mellow and carefree. The menu had some options that my family had never had before and the food was very good. The dining room is small, which is why I say it is ideal for couples but a table of six was cramped and I thought the food was a... More

This is a lovely, homey restaurant that was actually built as a home and converted to a restaurant. I love the atmosphere and decorating here. I've been going for years and have been partial to the huevos rancheros. It was my old standby, but the blue corn tortillas are now white tortillas and all around it just isn't the dish... More

Not only was the food great, the choices seemingly endless (in a good way), the service was fantastic, the coffee perfect, but the atmosphere (the place has a tree growing through it for goodness sake!) was superb! I will go back in a heartbeat if in the area. I've already added it to my list of good places to eat... More

Benedict's is my favorite place to go for breakfast...or lunch. Their menu goes beyond the ordinary, it is not your typical eggs & bacon place. I tend to order the same thing when I dine out, however their menu has been getting me out of that rut. I'm not much of a vegetable fan, but I tried Kathy's Healthy Scramble... More

Some of the best places are found by happenstance! This is a charming little place. On the outside looks like a residential home. This place is no ordinary breakfast place. The entrees are made fresh and with a little twist on breakfast food. I ordered Huevos Rancheros and will never regret it. My husband ordered the crab Omelette he didn't... More
