When you can elevate something simple like scrambled eggs, with the thoughtful additions of cream cheese, bacon and spinach, you have a chef who cares to make breakfast extra delicious. There are so many different breakfast treats to try!

OMG Amazing cream cheese peach stuffed French toast with raspberry drizzle. Enough said! Worth finding this spot and self serve coffee.

My husband and I visited Somewhere in Time Cafe yesterday and not only were we transported visually to another time, but also by taste. My husband had the Sausage Gravy Biscuits and declared it was the best breakfast he'd had...ever. Keeping in mind he rarely orders another breakfast dish besides his favorite, Eggs Benedict. I had the Hocus Poachus, which... More

5 stars for the treatment of a couple that came in with the old golden lab. There is outside seating and the couple ordered bacon side for the dog. Waitress came out with a bowl of water and a STACK of bacon. The dog was so happy. The food is great. Unlimited self serve coffee. With an extra cup to... More

When trying to decide where to go for breakfast we found this lovely cafe set with tables reminiscent of the "50's" complete with serve yourself coffee. The wait staff was very friendly and helpful. We had pancakes with blueberry sauce and an omelet. Great value

Stopped here for breakfast on the recommendation of the desk clerk at our hotel, and so glad we did! Great atmosphere, with old Formica-topped tables and comfy diner chairs. Being able to get your own coffee or tea is so nice (the coffee is terrific, and they even had real cream)! The service was great, and the food was out... More

What do you get when you combine fresh ingredients with good cooking? You get great food. My chicken aioli sandwich wrap was delicious and the Zinfandel vinaigrette dressing on the salad was out of this world. Will definitely come back and try something from their huge breakfast menu.

What a cute little place. Old time setting. Friendly staff. Food cooked to order and delish. Never been someplace that had a HUGE list of toast options. Definitely worth the stop.
