Been here many times before. The service is great staff friendly the food is good. Mid price range. I get the chicken fried steak and eggs. It is large portion of food. Something that is messy to make at home. I love to eat it here. Place is always clean and they have plenty of staff.

Went for lunch today. Great relaxed environment. Lot of choices on menu (breakfast was available all day today). Food was well prepared and arrived promptly. Owner and waitress very personable. Glad we found this place for future trips to Ft Walton. Everyone in our group was pleased with their food. Planning to go back tomorrow for breakfast on our way... More

Decided to try this breakfast spot, and were quickly shown to a table., as they were not busy on a Tuesday in mid-May. Staff is friendly,and we ordered coffee and orange juice. The coffee was okay, but the juice was definitely a cheap food service brand, and somewhat bitter. I really wanted a breakfast with a pancake, and found the... More

Had breakfast at the Neighborhood Cafe and it is a great little cafe. We almost didn't go because it is a strip center but don't let that stop you! Once inside we felt like we were in a quaint cafe. The food is very good and the staff is very friendly. I would definitely go back.

Small cafe with homedown good cooking...I had the crab cakes and they were yummy; my wife had one of the Thursdays specials that's not on the normal menu (German schnitzel). Very friendly staff and reasonable prices.

We were staying inland and just happened upon the Cafe. We were delighted. Great coffee, smiling servers, lots of breakfast choices. Neat and clean. Opportunities to mingle with the locals. Good enough we went back again before we headed out of town.

Cooking eggs over medium must be one of the most difficult things to do in a restaurant. Everywhere I go I order over medium eggs and even explain to the waitress/waiter (didn't want to appear sexist) what I think that means, whites of the egg not runny, yokes runny. Simple right? Well apparently not so simple. Cooking eggs must be... More
