Good hearty breakfast right here!

Yum Yum we stopped in before heading out for the day. Friendly service and old fashioned atmosphere. We had breakfast and it's the best in town! Will definitely go back.

This was just okay in summer of 2014. It has now closed permanently as of a week ago. The food was just average when we ate supper there. I would not have returned even if they remained open for business.

I gave it a Very Good because each of our visits were different. Went for lunch and although our food was good, the service was a bit hit and miss. The one waitress had the entire cafe and couldn't keep up. The woman behind the cash register didn't help her out at all...could have refilled drinks, checked on customers. We... More

French Toast was good, the kids liked the pancakes, the burrito was OK and the bacon was over done (made me sad, cuz I love bacon!) Not a bad place to stop for breakfast with limited choices in Townsend. It was clean, friendly and I would stop again.

We enjoyed dinner one night and a great breakfast the next day. We had hamburger steaks with grilled onions and a great salad for dinner. Breakfast was granola coated french toast and cheese omelets with great country ham and homemade biscuits!!

I am a local and I love to support my local cafes for food. I love their breakfast but for this visit we order a burger, a BLT with green fried tomato, and a fried baloney sandwich. The food was excellent and the fries were yummy. The wait staff is great and always happy and welcoming. They are tucked away... More

My wife and I eat at the Firefly often. Excellent food, great value. Live music on certain nights ...... My wife loves the crunchy french toast. Small, not right up against the main drag, look for the IGA grocery and then it is to the right

There was one other couple in the café when we arrived early Thursday morning. The portion sizes were typical to Bob Evans but homemade not frozen. Prices were reasonable.

This is where I went for coffee in the morning. It is a small cafe that also has a nice breakfast. It is a comfortable felling spot to get a quick cup of coffee or breakfast in the morning.
