Everything is made from scratch and nothing is fried. Bruce and his wife are great people. I have been there many times and never been disappointed. Love it!8

Lovely experience with friendly attention by the owners. Special Greek chicken wrap was grilled with fresh vegetables, a nice touch. Dessert was peach and cream cheesecake that was homemade and outstanding. Also excellently flavored banana cake! They have a huge selection of cheesecakes, their specialty. Worth a trip for casual enjoyment. A little hidden gem!

Five of us had lunch, with Bruce making sure we had just the right amount of sugar in our tea. Everyone enjoyed the meal. Service was very good. The warm brownie that came for dessert earned this restaurant five stars. Yum.

There are no words to describe Bruce Brown ... Or should I say not ENOUGH words. Bruce's Fabulous Foods™ is a most unique restaurant, with the best chef I know as the proprietor. The creativity and talent of Bruce and his staff are second to none. This restaurant may be in a small town, but Bruce Brown didn't make it... More

I think this place receives positive reviews because it's the ONLY place to eat in this town. The owner is rude. My son is 5 and we wanted to order his food while we waited for another person to join our party. He said no. We would have left, but the other options are so bad you have no choice... More

What appears to be a simple downtown café on its exterior is actually a real culinary delight. The menu offers plenty of options for all palates and the price is very reasonable. Nothing pretentious, nothing overpriced, nothing overstated. Simply very good food and very friendly staff. We had the Poor Man's Rueben - (Grilled turkey breast, Swiss cheese, cole slaw... More

Don't expect "super fancy" - that's not what "Bruce's" is about; "Bruce's is all about the food! Fast, friendly, made fresh and served with a smile. And.. Did I forget to mention cheesecake? Fast becoming nationally known for delivering a little bit of heaven!

Here is a small town restaurant with world class food! Bruce himself is on hand to greet you, visit your table and chat. Somewhat of a local celebrity, "He's on T.V. here locally" and can't quit, he's a star! His food is outstanding.You start off with a hummus sampler, the red beet and kale were exquisite, We all tasted each... More
