“Cafe Experience -great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013 via mobile

On the corner, if the weather allows sit outside and enjoy the world passing by. The mark of a good restaurant is one supported by the locals. On our recent visit their were families with children and grand parents enjoying brunch in the Spring sunshine. The menu has many options for those seeking either a full breakfast or like us wanting something lighter. Regardless of what you order it will be cooked to order. Coffee is good with plenty of refills. Breakfast for two gave us change out of 20$. So great value and tremendous quality.

“A great breakfast at a great value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Hearty portions and tasty food and attentive service - a perfect formula to start your day. Good coffee, skillet omelets with hash browns and get the Greek bread - sesame seeds/thick slices and home made marmalade. You'll only need a snack for lunch. Oatmeal available for those who want a lighter breakfast, as well as yogurt/granola/fruit.

“Accurate reviews”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Nothing new to add to recent reviews. Place is clean, food is good, service is efficient and coffee is always being refilled. What else is there?

“Great breakfast place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013 via mobile

This is an excellent place for breakfast - generous portions (too much?), very good coffee and many breakfasts served in skillets. We all enjoyed it so much we came back most days. Free wifi is good to have as well! Great spot - smells good and clean.
