The food was very good. The staff was very accommodating. We arrived between 12:00-12:30. There were 9 of us so I expected a long wait, but we were seated very quickly and our waitress was right there to take drink orders and food orders when we were ready.

We went here for breakfast based on the reviews on this site. There were four of us. Our experience did not match the positive reviews here. We ordered our food but had a long wait. When it did come it was obvious two of the plates had been sitting out for a long while. The two of us who had... More

Simple was recommended by a friend, and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Prices are moderate while the menu is varied to accommodate dietary preferences.

This was a very busy restaurant! Luckily, I was traveling solo, so I was able to sit at the lunch counter. I had the Simple Breakfast Sandwich with roasted potatoes - locally sourced, organic food. DELICIOUS!! The staff were very helpful and attentive. (One of the locals told me the management treats their staff very well and it shows!) I... More

We stopped in at Simple for breakfast during our weekend away and after spending a few minutes strolling the street while waiting on our table, we were welcomed in and promptly seated. Then the wait began. Clearly, the restaurant was quite busy, but it took several long moments before anyone came to fill our water cups, and after placing our... More

Simple's food has the delicious farm-to-table feel I love in the Midwest. I've somehow had the same server all three times I've come and she was also very good.

My pesto chicken sandwich was wonderful, and my husband enjoyed the tacos. The simple potatoes were a tad overlooked, and would have benefitted from a toss in olive oil with course salt and rosemary. Nice portion of food. $2 for each can of pop seemed steep. No refills here. Friendly, knowledgable service. Great atmosphere. We understand why this is ranked... More

We just finished breakfast at Simple and had a great experience there. I had the granola blueberry meal and it was great. My 15 year old son had more pancakes than he could eat and that young man can eat. My wife mentioned how friendly our server was! Must stop if you are visiting

I have been to Simple for both breakfast and lunch. The menu is very unique for the area with everything being local. When I went for breakfast it was on a Saturday morning around 10:30 am. We were seated right away inside; the outside seating had a small wait. I had the Turkey Pesto Hash and it was very good.... More
