Hidden gem. This place has the most amazing brunch ever!! Try the egg dishes!! And the specials are amazing. I always start off with the juice of the day. I don't care what's in it, it is always delicious and like a mini fruit salad. :-) I always will come back here!

This is my favorite place for breakfast! Everything is delish - eggs, french toast, benedicts, coffee, various hash browns. Staff is lovely. I wish it was bigger because you have to wait for a table on weekends but not such a problem during the week.

It is clear from the various TripAdvisor reviews that the service and/or staff response at Village Cafe and Bistro may need some improvement in the reviewers' eyes. There was a wait for breakfast when I chose to stop here, but the quality of the food outweighed the line of people standing ahead of me. If you want faster service, sitting... More

Our group of friends both enjoy breakfast and lunch. I looked for places that a good selection of both. The cafe serves breakfast until 11:30, and starts serving lunch at 11. Since 2 of us rarely go out early, breakfast won There was an excellent selection of omelettes and benedict (poached). All kinds of potatoes (including sweet potato). I had... More

First time here with a couple friends who said the food was amazing. Took 10 mins to get menus and another 10 mins to get 4 waters. Had to flag the waitress down to get a refill. My boyfriend had Oj, and when she brought it, it was warm. We told her and she seemed uninterested. Thank goodness the food... More

Village Cafe and Bistro in Canton Village is a "greasy spoon". I've been going for breakfast every other Friday for several years with a few fellow teachers. Service is always good and the food is consistently very good with added touches such as a slice of orange on your plate of pancakes, or eggs and home-fries and a slice of... More

The menu was very interesting. We settled for two different types of eggs Benny- didn't go for other egg dishes. Hubby tried lamb hash as well. His biggest beefs were: not enough hollandaise, too much potato in the hash. Mine: tasted like everything was cooked too close together on flat/top. My home fries tasted like lamb and there was a...
