Second time here and will return! My friend and I had breakfast on a Wednesday morning about 9:00. There was ample seating available. We were greeted right away and quickly seated by the smiling hostess. Our server, Kacy, was topnotch. She was attentive but not hovering, she anticipated our needs, was patient and thorough and very genuine throughout. Kacy is... More

Fast & friendly service, good food and nice size portions. I usually order lunch to go and stick with salads. I have always been happy with it.

Little pricy, but food has always been Amazing. Lot of glorified breakfast plates. Large portions, nice presentations. Serve bloodys and mimosas I believe.

The food is good and the portions large. I think the large portions account for many of the favorable reviews. Service is prompt and courteous. Overall no complaints and should be rated a solid number 2 behind Kim and Patties.

Went to Brunch Cafe for lunch on a Monday afternoon. I had the Banana Bred French Toast. It was very good. Our waitress was fast and very nice. My husband had a burger. He said he was very good. Will definitely go back here. Prices were very reasonable.

This place was nice. My husband really liked his steak quesidilla. Myself and another friend thought it was just ok. My Nacho Scrambler was a lot of food; (more than I needed), but I'm not sure it was worth the price. The BLT had a lot of lettuce, not much bacon or tomato. My friend wasn't too excited about it....

This restaurant has the widest variety of breakfast entrees around. Pancakes, french toast, waffles, egg dishes, omelets. The food is excellent. The service is excellent. Every time we go, it is busy....because the locals *know* that it is a terrific place to eat. Highly recommend.
