We really enjoy going to Brunch Cafe for breakfast. The menu is quite large but they also offer several specials everyday. Since we are retired we can go during the week when it is less crowded. The coffee at Brunch Cafe is much better than many other breakast restaurants and the waitstaff is always pleaseant and efficient. Look for coupons... More

This place is busy, but the service is still top notch. I had the cali crepe. It was HUGE times two and enough for two. The only negative was the crepe batter seemed too sweet for a savory crepe. The menu is quite diverse offering plenty of sweet and savory, breakfast and lunch options.

The menu is huge, so go to the website before coming to avoid the long read. I had the stuffed belgian waffle with strawberries, bananas, whipped cream and a SUPER-SWEET strawberry creme cheese. It was delicious, but VERY SWEET. I do wish the menu had given me a heads up. I am diabetic and thought I was safe, but I... More

My husband got a new convertible so we decided to take a long drive and read about this place on Trip Advisor. Everything we read was true. Service was great, portions were large and the menu is varied. It was Fathers Day so there was a long wait (30-45 minutes) - it was worth it! My husband had the vegetarian... More

This cafe has it all, a friendly environment, nice pleasing decor, very fast pace yet you can sit and visit with your breakfast / lunch companions for an hour if you like. They move people in and out, so while some times it is very busy the wait for a table is not long. It has become a local favorite,... More

We love this place. The Staff are ALWAYS nice and polite. After to many visits to count, I can honestly say we have never had bad service. The food is amazing. I suggest the California Crepes. For something on the lighter side. . The stuffed portobello is amazing. Our grandson loves the black and white pancakes. All in all..a great... More

The wait is worth it. Very good food, amazing choices. You will want to go back and try more! My friend and I tried two different breakfasts. We reviewed the lunch choices and will go back to try a few.
