I belong to a local women's lunch group. The Lone Wolf is a favorite of many of us. Although it is a breakfast restaurant, it is open until 130 or 2 PM so it's perfect for those of us like breakfast for lunch! I like the South west dishes best, the Santa Fe omelette and the South west scramble. Last... More

The Lone Wolf has excellent breakfast and lunch specialities. It is a cross between southwest USA/Mexico and Brooklyn Deli type selections. My favorite is the 'huevos rancheros' which is the best version in the valley. It has a very pleasant decor and helpful service. It is difficult to go wrong.

For breakfast and lunch, the Lone Wolf delivers traditional eggs, toast, and really good home fries but it offers so much more. You can build your own omelette from a raft of ingredients, try a Southwestern breakfast entree or indulge your inner vegan in a vegan omelette. I love the challah french toast with syrup and fruit, but my grandchildren... More

This place is in the central part of the town near Amherst College. It's a small place, but it seems like a pretty cool place. The service is very good. Everyone is very friendly and greet you with a smile as soon as you walk in. The food was great. I had Rachel's Choice, which is your choice of pancakes... More

We went there with my son for breakfast about a year ago. The food is very good and tasty, organic, and local. The server we had wasn't very attentive, which is why only 4 stars. Also, unfortunately, in "trendy" places like this in the two local college towns in Amherst and Northampton, they attract a certain kind of clientele that... More

Lone Wolf has an extensive menu and wonderful food. The coffee is excellent and there are gluten-free options.

This is a very popular spot in town, so when you get there it is not uncommon to have to wait for a table, but the wait is a lot shorter in the summer (~15mn) compared to when the semester is in full swing. But, there is a reason why it is always crowded. The portions are well done for... More

Wide variety of breakfast food to choose from. Good coffee which is refillable, but our server was like a robot..no personal warmth; didn't refill our coffee upon request (my husband had to get it himself after more than 15 mins. of waiting), she was quick to give our check without asking if we had additional orders, and we had to...

This is one of the best places for Vegan Breakfast and Brunch in Amherst Downtown. They even serve Vegan Omelettes, Pancakes and Tofu Scramble. Their homemade salsa is just amazing. And the service is also good. I have been to this place 4 times , and each time there was a waiting of at least 5 minutes. So I recommend... More
