Wonderful twist

I had a grilled turkey sandwich with raspberries and caramelized onions. It was so very good. The chicken noodle soup was scrumptious.

Decent food, price is just ok at $10-14 with soda for lunch. Service was decent, but overall from entering to leaving figure on nearly an hour plus. Not a place for a quick bite. And while slow, not the kind of place that you would expect to linger because of the atmosphere. Food was not bad so it could be... More

Cronies is undoubtedly my favorite breakfast and lunch place (especially breakfast). Service is good, and fast, and the food is not only excellent, but a little unusual, especially for such a small city. BTW, their coffee is best in town. I never drink the flavor of the day (my wife does), but their regular and their decaf is better than... More

Cronies stuffed French toast is delicious. Coffees are awesome. Restaurant is small but homey. Service is somewhat slow.

This place is overpriced and overrated with extremely slow service. Unfortunately, a good coffee shop in this town is lacking so by default they get business.

My father always said, "Always check the windows in a restaurant, because if the owner is detailed enough to make sure the windows are clean then you've come to a well run establishment." Cronies windows are gleaming......great place for breakfast....they give you TALL mugs of hot coffee and meals are tasty. Try the cinnamon roll....made fresh daily.....all bakery items are... More

Good food and service. Try the fried sauerkraut balls --- truly delicious! The patio provided a delightful summer evening to enjoy with friends..

I have only had breakfast here- the pancakes are HUGE! not to mention delicious. The atmosphere is friendly. However, I was not at impressed with the service. The food takes a super long time! we waited over an hour the first time. The second time, I waited 25 minutes. When you get the check, I have had to walk up... More
