We walked in and there was only two tables filled so we were the third. It took 45 min to get two fried eggs and toast -don't know why it was so slow. Husband had a special casserole and he couldn't find the eggs in it-two many potatoes. Wouldn't go here again.

Had to wait 15 minutes for a table when multiple tables were available. Nobody even acknowledged is while we were waiting. Then we sat down and had to wait at least 15 minutes for our coffees to be told that they were out of the ice coffee that we ordered so we got hot coffee instead. Ten minutes later she... More

This is the same table that skipped out on their bill, after we comped all the drinks and took 10% off the bill, right? Yes, we remember you guys. Have a nice day. More

We are sorry you had such a bad experience, but we remember you and your self-important table. You guys sat down at a dirty table, and expected immediate service with a full dining room. Yes we did mess up one of your 4 meals, and my "rude" manager left a very busy kitchen to comp the entire tables drinks and... More

Had read reviews with anticipation but when we arrived late on a Sunday a.m. at an empty dining room, we were ignored by the staff for 10 minutes. But the killer was the new menu with a price increase, e.g., $11.95 for an omelette with toast plus coffee for $2.50. Waitress claimed they hadn't had an increase in years.

I just wanted to clear up that no omelet on our menu is 11.95 unless you add a bunch of stuff to an ordinary omelet. Also, you get toast and home fries, not just toast. Our coffee is 2.50, but it's bottomless. Drink all you want for 2.50. Our waitress was right. I am the owner, and I can tell... More

For several years we've enjoyed stopping here for breakfast occasionally. In the past we felt the value and service and style were a plus. Today's experience set us to wondering what's happened here. Previously we had a charming waitress who supplied upon request real maple syrup for their signature french toast, thick slabs of that ubiquitous breakfast classic. Today's french... More

I must say, we have been making our french toast the same way for 7 years. We have NEVER made it with "ordinary bread". I must call you out on a flat out lie. It just never-ever happened. Yes, we dust it with powdered sugar. (maybe our plate finisher got a little over-zealous that day) Yes, we no longer carry... More

We went due to the positive reviews. The food is fine. But the service leaves a lot to be desired. We waited an inexorablly long time to even get coffee! They do cook everything to order so I understand that this is not a fast-food restaurant, but the wait staff needs a lot of training.

We are truly sorry for the bad experience you had. Rest assured the staff has been dealt with accordingly. We have some new waitresses, and lost the dead weight. Please consider giving us another try. Thank you. More

Food was very good. Kitchen is spotless (you need to pass it to go to the rest room which is nice because you get a great view). The owner is a very nice man and the waitress is adorable.

If you want to try a place that us not as crazy as the others come to Rise and Shine. At times they could use an additional waitress, however the food is consistently good. French toast is excellent. Give them a try...right next to Benny's.
