Midtown has an extensive menu and a great selection of desserts to choose from. The service is good and the atmosphere is casual and comfortable.

“Expensive for breakfast . BUT.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2012

You get consistant food there. We go often for breakfast and it never waivers. The pecan pancakes just keep pulling me back in.

“Falls Short for Breakfast”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2012

This is better known as the Midtown Café and Dessertery, and apparently just recently started served breakfast. Probably would be better off sticking to the dessertery thing. The food was so-so (I mean, what can you do to breakfast food?) --- the sunny-side eggs were runny/barely cooked and the “grilled” English muffins were not grilled, but only had been lightly heated perhaps in a toaster or microwave. Service was OK but not especially personable, not exactly a cheery start to the day. Ambiance was fine, nothing special --- diner-ish. The reasonable pricing made the overall value pretty good. An interesting feature of the menu is a section for seniors and children --- this is an excellent idea since seniors often want the smaller portions that most places offer only to children. Unfortunately, that selection was pretty limited. Nonetheless, we probably wouldn’t return since there are better places for breakfast.

“Great for Breakfast all day & Cake”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2011

Just skip the rest of the menu--this place has great pancakes and cakes. The entrees are forgettable. Focus on their specialties: breakfast and dessert.

“Okay for Desserts”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2011 via mobile

Perhaps I'm overly critical but I don't find the food that great. It is by no means bad. A little pricey for the quality. Desserts are fair to good. A fun place to go with friends and share and taste lots of desserts.
