I came to this cafe this morning with my boyfriend for the first time, and we had a delicious meal .It was so fun with all the aeronautical history and pictures and decorations! The staff was very friendly and accommodating, checked on us often to make sure our needs were met. I really enjoyed my breakfast! Next time I'm bringing... More

I've eaten at this cafe twice. Once for lunch and most recently for breakfast. We had a table of 9 and it was no problem for them to accommodate us. The breakfast special was a real deal for $7.95--eggs, potatoes, sausage (a HUGE patty, very good) and coffee. The food here is always good and you get to watch the... More

Love watching the plains take off and land while you sit and have a nice meal. Lots of choices on the menu, I'm sure you can find something that you like on their menu.

Even if my husband wasn't a aviation geek, we would return here again and again. Cinnamon rolls are killer. We have never had bad service in the 9 years of eating here, I am really surprised to read of a problem. The original family still own this restaurant, I would call and talk to a manager before I let one... More

My one tip on most of the items on the menu, choose the half order. My Chicken Fried Steak half order was huge, couldn't finish it. Service was fast and attentive. Will be back. Get there early it is usually packed and busy.

We had breakfast there and it was absolutely fabulous! Large portions and not overly priced. They served REAL hashbrowns and the chicken fried steak was not only delicious, it was big enough to feed 2 people! While enjoying our breakfast, since Skyway Cafe is right next to Felts Field Air strip, we got to watch the planes take off and... More

We ate here the other day and were satisfied overall. We ordered from the menu (choosing something was the hard part.) I myself got the Belgian waffle and a side of sausage and half a side order of hash browns. When the food arrived I was surprised at the size of the waffle, but mostly the amount of hash browns...

My loves and I went to Felts Field for their Neighborhood Appreciate Day and decided to get something to eat. Although they were extremely busy we were seated immediately. Our server was a bit brusk, but in no way rude and she was efficient. I am a huge fan of Eggs Benedict and theirs is definitely in my top ten!... More

My family and I wanted to try something new on Satuday for breakfast. We knew that any diner would be busy and anticipated a wait to be seated, we are a family of 5 so we usually have to wait. After we were seated, it took almost 20 minutes to get out order taken. We then waited another 45 minutes... More
