Wow! Great food, excellent friendly service!

We had a large group on a Saturday for lunch. We had to wait, but boy was it worth it. I had the taco salad that was unbelievable. A nice piece of steak with fresh greens and home made tortilla chips. A nice hunk of avocado and a dressing that was tangy but not overbearing. Others had a variety... read more

There was nothing they did wrong, the place is clean and the staff friendly, I just didn't like the food. I had a burger that was clearly frozen, prepackaged and the texture of pink slime... I can't even think about it. Ick. They tried making up for their cheap food ingredients with a fairly decent craft beer selection, but that's... More

Great coffee, fast service, and good food. Cheerful, cozy, and friendly atmosphere. I love their Mama's Mimosa, served in a large wine goblet! Thick slabs of ham. Eggs cooked to perfection.

We didn't eat at the place, we only have a drink. The selection of beers was ok, other drinks seemed ok too. It's really noisy in there so it's difficult to carry on a conversation without yelling!

Ordered a breakfast, dinner and two appetizers. All came at the same time. One appetizer was inedible, so only one of ten consumed. Was not offered a discount or substitution. Felt the server was new and inexperienced. Bathroom was filthy which makes me wonder about the kitchen.

Being from the southern portion of the US, I love Biscuits and Gravy. The farther north you live it becomes more difficult to find this southern delicacy. Not any more, had a great helpin' of Biscuits and Sausage Gravy today at Highland Café and Bakery. My first time here, surprisingly, considering I live within walking distance.

Friendly, relaxed atmosphere "where people know your name." A true neighborhood cafe where groups can play cards in the afternoon, or gather for breakfast in the morning. I've been going here for years and never feel rushed. Good acoustics for quiet conversation. Unpretentious atmosphere, delicious food and baked goods, reasonable prices. Easy place to go solo. Friendly staff, convenient parking.
