Great value, good food

Took some out of town guests to lunch at the cafe. Food was good but, service was a bit slow. Our guests enjoyed the food and recalled memories of the Cafe once being a bowling alley. Lots of people enjoying breakfast and lunch. Will go there again.

We eat here often, the fried chicken is the best, and the home fries are great. Prices are hard to beat, family place.

My wife and I come here from time to time for breakfast. They have a good menu and the food is excellent. The steak and eggs are some of the best I have had. The wait staff is awesome and attentive to your needs. They are always busy but I have never had to wait for a table or service.... More

I eat here about once a month. Their breakfasts are great - I get the Popeye omelette most mornings. But my very favorite is the rueben sandwich. Made in the traditional way, delicious. Always good service and very good value for your $

I was one that banged the drum for this place. Now the drum has gone silent. The last 4 times here its been a disappointment. Today was the last straw. We arrived late morning about 10:00. Had a 5 minute wait to be seated. While waiting we watched a bus boy cleaning tables. He was using the same rag to... More

My husband and I do try to visit here at least once a month for breakfast. The place is very simple, no frills here. Large room with many tables. Servers are on their toes, very good teamwork. Food is good home style breakfast foods. The fried potatoes are usually very good as well. Always a fresh cup of coffee. Cudos... More
