Great breakfast, lunch or dinner

We eat there a lot for breakfast. Their omelettes are fluffy and they have great Mexican specialties. For lunch, the Blind Faith salad is my favorite along with anything with sweet potato fries. We love the Bimbimbop and lots more for dinner and don't tell a meat eater - it's vegetarian! We... read more

Since the owner changed, this is a really poor restaurant. It used to be a hip, cool place with interesting dishes. Now it is loud, has bad service, and poor food. We gave it a shot a couple of weeks ago, and we are not going back. One of the servers was going around shouting and laughing loudly, the servers... More

Blind Faith Cafe is a great place for breakfast on the weekend. These days you can get seated without long lines. The food has good taste, is healthy, and of good quality. Recommended for vegetarians and non-vegetarians. Take a walk by the lake before dining to make it a special experience.

Although I am not vegetarian, this restaurant serves interesting, fresh food. There is great variety. It is served attractively. The restaurant is bright with fresh flowers on the tables. My favorite spots are the tables near the windows.

My wife and I arrived about 30 minutes early so we had a seat in what appeared to be the breakfast bar area. I had a beer, my wife had a glass of wine. Then we had a blueberry pastry thing with crumbly crumbles on top. Then we had some complementary nachos and salsa. And more beer and wine. Everyone... More

Everyone loved their selection. Lots of healthy choices. All substitutions were willingly and graciously accommodated. The place was hopping! Would definitely return.
