Real Food Cafe is a labor of love since all the menu items are made from scratch. Not only is everything home made, they have also put a tasty spin to traditional favorites such as Eggs Benedict. During my last visit I ordered Irish Benedict, which was fabulous, it included English muffins,corned beef hash, fresh spinach, eggs and a light... More

I frequently go here and every time I love it more and more. The best breakfast hands down and it has become the only place that I will eat out breakfast because everywhere else is a huge disappointment. Guy Fieri should come here!

Two of us stopped in for a quick bite on a Thursday morning. Got seated right away. Waitress was prompt. I ordered the special which was a breakfast bowl with fruit. She ordered the strawberry pancakes. Both plates were delicious. Prices were very reasonable. Cash only.

Found this place searching TripAdvisor from our hotel, and chose it mainly because it was close by, and secondly because of its rave reviews. It was excellent! Super friendly staff, and the food is amazing. My husband had the Irish Benedict, and said it was--bar none--the best corned beef and best Hollandaise sauce he's ever had. I ordered the breakfast...

I read so many reviews on the breakfast here that I thought I would try it. But then I walked in saw someone had a Cuban which looked good and it was their special that day so I got it. Pulled pork with mustard, ham and pickles on ciabatta bread was very good. The pulled pork was a lot better... More

I had been here before and found it just OK. It is always busy with a wait, so when a friend suggested this place I didn't have high expectations. We ate on a Friday at 10:00am. I had the 2 eggs, 2 sausage patties, and 2 small pancakes. I like a variety plate. They advertise the pancakes are made from... More

We went to brunch here on a wednesday morning. I was disappointed with how long it took for the waitress to take our order. We had to tell her we were in a bit of a rush.

I loved the food and the service, and anytime you find a restaurant this good that is part of a terrific neighborhood, well, that's just a bonus.

Real Foods Cafe served me a world class omelet. ....and the coffee is outstanding. Just a small cafe in an older GR neighborhood. Met a friend for breakfast and he lives close or I wow never have found this gem.

My boyfriend and I come to Real Food every Sunday for breakfast and we love it. Always a bit of a wait because it is so popular, but we don't mind because it is well worth it! Portions are great and service is also!
