When we first moved to Lake Mary in the late 70's this was the only place to eat. Still steady as a rock. Just plain ol' good food and friendly Lake Mary home town service!

I have been to Appletons Cafe with many family members over the years and have always had a very pleasant experience. This time was no different PLUS fabulous Halloween decorations!! We've been there for easter and valentine's day and there are elaborate decorations we have enjoyed so much! I think the interesting appeal of this particular restaurant is that the... More

Had the eggs Benedict which was very good but service could have been better with how small the place is. Server only came by once after delivering food. Not the type of service I was expecting. May go back to see if the service is any better.

Went there at 2:00 for a very late breakfast.....and so glad I did. The chicken fried steak and gravy was delicious. My husband had a breakfast bowl or something like that and it was also delicious. My grandson loved his eggs and blueberry pancakes. The place really had a family and small town feel to it. Same owner since 1999.... More

This restaurant is closed on Mondays. Open for breakfast and lunch only. Good home cooking at reasonable prices. There is a screened in patio which is nice when it's cooler. The corned beef hash and gyro meat are very good. Typical breakfast and lunch fare. We've never had a bad meal here. They decorate for Halloween (could be scary for... More

This is a small restaurant that closes after lunch. While the food is not gourmet, I have never had a bad meal here. The time to visit is during a major holiday-they go all out decorating, every inch transformed. Halloween and Christmas are amazing-servers are in costume for Halloween.. If you have children, they will be thrilled. If you are... More

Great place for brunch which is breakfast. No lunch served on Sunda. Great service with the big group we had. The server was efficient and personable. She got all the orders correct and the bills were right on.

The cafe is located in a mall complex composed mostly of health businesses, along with a Montessori preschool. We came for breakfast just before St Patrick's Day in March. The entire cafe was decorated in green for the holiday. The waitress was pleasant, explaining how each holiday is a special occasion here. The food was tasty; prices reasonable. So, we... More

This is the restaurant out of the 60's. Everyone was a senior citizen, Service was poor and food was lousy.

We've visited Appletons quite a bit over the years. We never love the food but don't necessarily go for good grub. Appletons decor is what gets you in the door and makes you wanna come back. They deck out the place for every holiday! The food is not bad .... it just isn't phenomenal. The service however, is fantastic! Quick,... More
