Breakfast Favorite

Breakfast at the Finch has become so popular, it's hard to get in on a Saturday morning! Standard breakfast fare is available, but some of the specialty items are worth a try. My personal favorite is the Bird's Nest...eggs served in a nest of hash browns, with ham on the side. No matter what you... read more

I had breakfast at the Purple Finch Cafe today and my wife had lunch. The Texas omelet was very tasty and it was served with hash browns, cooked very crispy like I like them and a huge grilled English muffin. It could not have been done any better than they did it. My wife ordered a Thai Peanut Salad, which... More

I will start with a positive because it was good. It was nothing great though, have to be honest. The chicken salad I could make at home and where they make it such a big deal that it is their own special recipe I thought I would be blown away...umm nope. Friend felt equally unimpressed, but it's not like it... More

I've visited the Purple Finch since their opening. The atmosphere is ok, but needs something to set it apart from other cafes. They have some great omelets, they can get creative in filling options. I am a big fan of their lunches. The California Chicken Salad sandwich and Funky Chicken are my favorites. Definitely go for the sweet potato dots!

We love their omelets and healthy breakfast yogurt parfait. They have a great menu with lot of choices and the ones we have had, have all been very good.

Atmosphere...ok. But the food and service are excellent. Breakfast or lunch/brunch... Plenty to try on the menu and the service is fast. Get the homemade doughnuts. Yep. Delicious. Also, eggs or pancakes are tasty and just the way you want it. Be ready to sit at the counter because the place is jammed on the weekend - but worth going.... More

I went here after a Wintercession yoga class for my group and the food was really good! I had a Texas Omelet and boy was it delicious. There was chili in it and I had really amazing home fries as well. Just writing about it makes me want more! They are also famous for their sweet potato donuts, and that... More

My husband and I went to breakfast here and it was great. It is a cute place with nice décor. It is very clean and well run. The hostess's and waitresses are always welcoming and nice. I would say it might be priced a little higher than your average Breakfast place, but it is worth it. They also have lunch... More

Such a great little spot....I've had breakfast and lunch there, and it's very consistent. The food is fresh, the service is always spot on.
