We met friends for late breakfast/early lunch. The seating area in the diner looked cozy but we chose the dining room due to the size of our group. Half of our group had lunch, half had breakfast. I loved the vegie benedict and hash browns. Will definitely go back.

My husband and I had a mtg downtown and thought this looked like a quaint fun place to try for breakfast. We sat at the counter thinking it would be friendly and quicker. We had over an hour before our mtg 3 blocks away and the service was so miserable we had to have it boxed before even taking a... More

We ate breakfast here both mornings. The cafe has the original counter from the 1920's and looks out on the courtyard. We had the same waitress both mornings she was great.There were plenty of food choices, good prices, good food, plus discount coupons for hotel guests. Can't beat that!

I at a breakfast sandwich on a croissant. It was huge and I ate the whole thing. The cooked potato slices had such a unique flavor I passed them around to my entire group. All four of us agreed that it was the best way to start our day. I highly encourage everyone to eat at the Plaza Cafe for... More

Wonderful service, delicious food, charming courtyard dining area... what more do you need?! I had breakfast here and I always have a few things I am particular about- egg whites, light on oil and cheese if used, adding fresh fruit if not included- and they were so great to be able to accomodate everything!

We have had brunch/breakfast at the Plaza three times in the past year: once in the dead of winter and twice in the summer. Enjoying breakfast on their interior courtyard patio is a real treat. It's quiet, bright, and the ivy-covered walls are very dramatic and lovely. My assessment of the food is good to above average. I like the... More

I would highly recommend. We arrived at 11:10 and told them we had to be on the road by 11:30 and they went out of their way to accommodate! We are on our way in time. Very cool art deco vibe, cooks in chef whites running a very efficient kitchen. Food was very good, we had Pork and Spatzle and... More

Our 8-person group waited over an hour for our food and several orders were missing ingredients. We were never offered an apology or explanation from our waiter for our slow service.

This place is just the best! Attentive, friendly servers. I highly recommend the breakfast burrito, huge portion with the sinfully greasy home fries. Seriously those potatoes were fantastic and a guilty pleasure! The pancakes were huge, but light and fluffy. Oh and the chilled raspberry soup? It was to die for! If I were a local, I'd be here everyday!!... More
