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

Last week, I met my business partner and clients at Appletons. The clients had taken the train from New Jersey to Florida and were to leave on a cruise the next day. Unfortunately, they left their passports at home. Since we had just found out at the restaurant, we had to delay ordering until we could get this solved...it took... More

We have eaten at Appleton's for breakfast every time we travel to Lake Mary to visit family and we have never been disappointed. The food is pure comfort style, with a little personal flavor. The servings are ample, prepared to order, and will get you moving in the morning. The coffee is first rate as is the service: friendly, prompt,... More

Have visited Appletons for many years for breakfast and have Never had an issue. The eggs are real not powder, and if you would like a condiment not on the table or something the waiters will always get for you. I have read the other visits and find it hard to believe, i didn't read anyone asking for a reduced... More

This is like having mom cook for you. The food is good and it is priced so it won't break the bank. The decorate for the holidays. It is Halloween right now. The draw back is they close at 3 pm.
