Had a awesome early supper here on a Thursday night & they had live piano music. So relaxing! The food was great. I had the corn beef & cabbage & potatoes. So amazingly good. Others had lasagna & enjoyed as well. Will definitely be back again soon.

Recipe Box is a great little breakfast spot! Massive pancakes, great biscuits and eggs, sausage, bacon and omelets---it's all good! Nothing fancy, just home cooked meals, friendly service, good prices in a homey setting. Very good coffee too. Only drawback is you might have to wait if you go during peak times. Worth the wait though. Sure you'll agree, Recipe... More

Lots of people are coming here. I ordered a shrimp wrap for brunch and it was really good. They also have lots to offer from breakfast to lunch.

Flew back into the country early, arriving at 0900. Headed for the Recipe Box for my usual, half Mama's Breakfast. However, the sign for specials out front caught my attention. The quiche listed might not have been what I received, but it surely was yummy. Filled with ground sausage, tiny bit, of spinach, and topped with 2 cheeses, the quiche... More

They are breakfast and lunch only place, and no matter what type of food you pick, you'll be pleased! All portions are huge! I've never eating my whole meal here. In addition, I've never gotten something I was not impressed with, and I've been here many times. I highly recommend this place!

The Recipe Box is our weekend favorite for breakfast. They serve large portions, friendly service, the best coffee and with reasonable prices. You can't go wrong stopping here for breakfast or lunch!
