The food was edible, but not exactly prepared the way I would have liked. Home fries weren't cooked through and they were cold. The omelet was good, as was the pancake I ordered. The bacon, though we ordered it "extra crispy" was fatty and also not cooked very well. The waitress was nice, but also forgot part of our order.... More

We were there on a Sunday am for breakfast-the eggs were cold, the homefries (???)-sliced potatoes thrown on a grill, burnt on one side and no seasoning!!! The sausage was greasy and had a funky taste to it. At least the coffee was ok-the waitress could not have cared in the least. She recommended that we put ketchup or hot... More

Good selection of traditional food. Prepared well and served pretty quickly. Portions were generous but not as overwhelming as at some other restaurants.

Their diner-style food is great. I love their breakfast but their frosted sugar cookies are to die for. Their other baked goods are equally delicious, too. THIS is how baking SHOULD TASTE.

Light's is a bakery with a strong diner vibe. Like everywhere, prices are up and that is true here as well, although still lower than most. They make a great selection of food, have breakfast all the time and we have always liked our meals. Being a bakery at heart, don't miss the pies, cakes or cookies.

This place used to be much better. However, the last year or two, when I've decided to try again, I've been dissapointed. The service is poor and the food is prepackaged and just bad. The last time I went I had a burger. It was terrible. Dry, hard, flavorless. You could tell it came from a box. On top of... More

Weak coffee, heartburn-pie, standard baked goods, and an arcane system of paying the bill. I think their baked goods are all made from a box.
