I have been eating here since I was in junior high. Although I have seen many changes to the café itself, the food has always been tasty and a good value.

Toro Park Café is a very informal roadside country cafe. It offers an extensive menu for a traditional breakfast or lunch. Service is great and very quick. Also has a small outdoor seating area. Very tasty comfort food, well prepared and generous proportions.

There are very few restaurants where I order a variety of things from the menu and this is one of them. I nave never ordered something I did not like. Food portions are generous and the staff is very attentive.

Yes, we would come back. You will know the place has good food and fast service if it is crowded on a weekday. Indeed, the food to the service was great.

If you look at my review for Toro Park Cafe, you will see everything great I wrote about this place. It is called Toro Place Cafe, not Toro Park Cafe.
