The place is always packed. That should say it all. If you go I recommend reviewing the menu on line before you visit. I don't know how they can offer such a variety of menu items with such a small kitchen but they do a great job.

This place has amazing breakfast foods! Show up early if you don't want to wait, if you have to wait it out stay!!! The food is amazing. Think everything breakfast and make it huge and gourmet.

If you live in Sinking Spring (or the west side of Reading, PA), you know about this place and have likely tried it. Can't say I could eat here every day, but that's because it's best viewed as a "treat"! And it is most definitely that. If you can't find some amazing breakfast combination on this menu, you simply don't... More

We stop into Tomcat every now and then, for breakfast/brunch. It's generally a busy place, so there is usually a line on Sunday morning, but it is well worth the wait. The staff is quite friendly. The kitchen can be seen from the eating area, so you know that your meal is made up fresh. The only problem is deciding... More

This is a really cool place with really good food and really big portions. You will need your patience as it is very busy and small so a wait will be required in most cases. The hostest will take your name and number and call your cell when the table is ready.

This is by far our favorite breakfast spot. Not your typical breakfast menu. It's very eclectic & extensive which makes it a bit overwhelming. We try something different each time we are there, and have never been disappointed. You know a good restaurant by whether it's full or not, so be prepared to wait. You won't be disappointed.

Travelled to Reading, PA for a concert and was searching for a full breakfast menu. We came across Tom Cat Cafe and was very, very pleased!! Although we had to wait awhile, we observed the staff serving the crowd and they were always smiling, moving quickly and efficiently and their smiles never floundered. They were like a well oiled machine.... More

My husband & I drove past Tomcat many times after moving to PA several years ago. Some friends told us it was amazing, so we decided to check it out. When we first saw the extensive breakfast menu, we thought, "Oh great...big menu means jack-of-all-trades, master-of-none." Boy, were we wrong! In the past two years, we have tried numerous dishes...
