Breakfast

My wife and I have visited this Resturant on three (3) occasions and have never been disappointed. The pancakes are very good as well as the other breakfast dishes. We will return again.

Wonderful experience dining here!!, Parking easy to access around the oval or behind the building. Food is very fresh, not overwhelming portions, place is clean and nicely decorated. Fast and friendly waitstaff that don't hurry if you want another cup of coffee to linger longer!

Great place to meet for breakfast. Food is always excellent, wait staff attentive, and service is fast (but not too fast)!

Love this place for a quick and hearty breakfast with my boyfriend. The plates are your usual breakfast fare but they always have yummy looking specials and some plates come with a cinnamon roll, yum.

I have been a regular customer since well before Paul bought the original "Lucille's". It used to be that the staff was very focussed on the customers such that a first time visitor would easily observe the great interactions between staff and customers.

Seated quickly,some interesting items on menu(pork Pie). Food was well presented and tasted fine. Major problem was that it appears no wait staff is assigned to your table. Whoever walks by is suspose to check on you. Did not happen. Had to flag down a server to get more coffee (a very critical item at breakfast).

All of the usual breakfast items. The food is good. The coffee is good. The waitresses are friendly. But what makes this place special is how fast the service is. You can come at the busiest time, and your food will be on the table minutes after ordering! They have things down to a science!!

Love Cafe on the Oval! Great for breakfast or lunch. Our grandkids enjoyed the food and the casual ambience.My favorite breakfasts are the grilled cinnamon roll and the pumpkin bread pudding that they serve in the fall.
