Good Solid Comfort Food

Just had lunch at FC. Very busy lunch hour today so the service was a little slow and somewhat spotty. Nothing major, but the young lady waiting on us did things like forget to bring ketchup after asked for it, had to be asked for coffee or tea refills. The food was good as it consistently is here... read more

We decided to try something new other than the organic coffee house we usually do eat out breakfast at and we are so glad we did. Although the coffee is just ol regular coffee, the food was great. We had a strawberry waffle, omelet, and biscuit sliders and all were equally delicious. Service was consistent even though they were busy.... More

I have eaten here 4 times in the last 3 weeks and every visit brings a surprise. The brunch is absolutely the best in my opinion, however the service can be surprisingly good or disappointingly bad. It does seem better when the young manager is around. And, I must say that the hostesses are always a delight. On Tuesday night... More

We love this place. We usually visit once a week for breakfast or lunch. The food is excellent! The service isn't always the greatest, but the quality of the meals more than makes up for it.

Had the biscuits and gravy with poblano pepper and sausage and fried egg shared by two with hash browns and more than enough. It wasn't real busy at 8am on a saturday but have seen lines out the door. Very diverse menu, great waitstaff and food was served very warm. Nice place on the square but with all the construction...

From the moment you walk in you feel the friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Casual dining, reasonably priced with five star food. Extensive wine list with Sunday night wine special. The wait staff and management make you feel like family and you are being welcomed into their home. We have only been there for dinner, but I am sure other meals... More

An odd niche between upscale restaurant and breakfast diner, but with consistently good food. Go for the specials at dinner.

Our kids raved about this place so my wife and I tried it for lunch. Food was OK but not special. The price was unexpectedly high. Overall experience was just meh.

Nightmare for parking. I just drive on by now and go elsewhere. Pricey for regular food. Just my opinion
