We planned for breakfast to Hudson Cafe. It was nice experience. The staff is nice and friendly. Everyone pay extra attention to us. I like Red Velvet Pancake. This is a nice place for breakfast.

We were there on a Saturday morning. The food was very good, but the service was lacking. We had to wait for everything once we were seated and it took forever to get our check once we were finished. I'd be willing to try it again, but only at a less busy time.

I was looking forward to trying Hudson Cafe but it was a disappointment. The food was just average, nothing out of the ordinary. We ordered an omelette, savory crepe and the Voodoo Benedict. Nothing was a standout and the coffee was luke warm. I may return and try the waffles or stuffed french toast, maybe they will stand out. The... More

Delicious home-styled breakfast menu makes all of our mouths water! Long wait time to be seated. Solid menu with creative options for all taste buds.

Good and (over) filling food and portions. The pancakes are gigantic but very tasty. Fast service and very busy for a Friday morning. Highly recommended for breakfast or lunch.

Cafe itself is nothing special decor wise but food is great quality and very reasonably priced. Service is efficient and friendly. I tried the French Toast with bananas and berries which was delicious and filling. OJ is freshly squeezed and free coffee refills come regularly. Will return and would recommend!

Went here based on some reviews. Right from the friendly service, atmosphere and menu choices, we were more than wowed. The food was served hot and tasted absolutely excellent. We went for breakfast and it was the perfect start to our day. The food was delicious and portions generous. If you have a chance, this has to be on your... More
