“A different place to take out of town guests”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

Have been to Sisters several times. The breakfast food is good. Their stuffed french toast is very good, eggs and everything else are ok. A nice place to take out of town guests. A bit different. Located in Haile village which is a large planned community. They do not have free coffee refills and charge $2.00 each cup or you can get a carafe for $8.00 -- pricey for Gainesville. Overall it is more expensive then other breakfast locations. Service is spotty.

“Best meatloaf and mashed potatoes ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

Enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner at this wonderful gem of a restaurant. Service has been consistently professional, caring, and attentive. Breakfast Panko encrusted poached eggs served over spinach with hollandaise and parmesan is fantastic. All food is fresh, and prepared with care. Although I am not a meatloaf fan, the meatloaf and mashed potatoes on the dinner menu is fantastic! All of the baked goods are amazing. The homemade buttercream frosting is the best! And the cakes are incredibly creative.

“Great stuffed french toast, bloody mary bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2012

Brunch is a meal that can only be made better when paired with mimosas or bloody marys. The server was great and pointed out some regular favorites. The panko encrusted poached eggs were surprising in texture and flavor, absolutely delightful. Flaky crust that breaks into a perfect poach on a lightly wilted spinach tossed in a parmesan bechemal. LOVELY. The peach stuffed french toast was sweet and savory with its touch of ricotta cheese. The food took a little while to come out but it was more than worth it. Best of all, they had a create your own bloody mary bar that let me stuff my drink with blue cheese stuffed olives... I don't know if there's anything left to say.

“Bad food and sevices”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2012

My wife and I were there for Saturday brunch. We did not like the food or the services. Servers are very rude and made us feel like why we were there! I ordered the eggs and bacon and other stuff. Bacon smelled like wet dogs, my over easy eggs were rubbery and I had to wait about 20 minutes to get a glass of water. They charge me for all the coffee refills, which is ok with me. Two days later I checked my credit card and noticed that they charged TWICE WHAT MY BILL WAS. I had to call them many times to get hold of a manager and she was very rude and and nasty toward me. I do not recommend this place for anyone.
