This place was awful. Hands down would rather eat at McDonald’s. The omelette was disgusting, didn’t even have real cheese in it. Over priced. Not good service.

I am sorry I am one of those who drinks diet Coke for breakfast. When the waitress came over to take our order, I ordered my usual Diet Coke and the grimace on her face was priceless. She simply told me that they only have...Coke not Diet Coke. I asked her if they were out of Diet Coke and I was told that the owner only carries Coke. Strange, First time this is ever happened and I've traveled the world. Next, my husband and I just wanted to eat an omelette. I just wanted a plain cheese omelette and he wanted a bacon Swiss. We did not like the omelette options. However, they did not have a build your own selection. I figured I can order just a plain omelette but I was told I couldn't make any substitutions to the menu. Unfortunately, I have a severe intolerance to onions and every omelette had onions in it We ended up ordering the three eggs anyway meal. we were asked if we wanted bacon or sausage the same way we were asked if we wanted home fries or grits. Of course, afterwards we realized that the bacon and sausage were extra however, on the menu it said it was $14 on our bill,we were charged $15. After eating our dried scrambled eggs and not getting what we want, I didn't want to ask for a menu to squabble over three dollars. PMore

If I could give negative stars I would. Owner makes the business and unfortunately the owner of this place is a total see you next Tuesday :) it does so happen to seem she may be burnt out, but she does not have a real...passion for her job. Or her employees. Or her customers & neighbors. Illegal service dog “rules”. My animal is a certified service dog. He was not welcome, I am disabled, and we are in Florida and she refused water for him. Refused an extra water for the service dog in the heat? Unfortunately her staff is so brainwashed and fearful of losing their jobs that they just let her bully them. I feel for this business as a whole, but deff a vacation no go in my books. Food is mediocre and overpriced. I, nor my family, will never be back here. And I wouldn’t recommend it to my worst enemy. 😘More

This place is amazing! Lisa the owner pours her heart and soul into her place. She is passionate about her food and drinks and has a wonderful staff supporting her vision.

Same experience as so many others…rude service. My wife ordered a side of bacon that was delivered barely cooked and super fatty. I asked for it to be cooked a bit more and was told “no, this is how the owner likes it so eat...it the way it is or I will throw it out!” Come on…seriously. That would be like saying you can only have your eggs scrambled because that is how the owner eats her eggs. Food is fine, no better than many other places and certainly nowhere close to Clear Sky in Clearwater Beach or Bouy’s in St. Pete Beach. Spend your time and hard earned money somewhere else. We sure will.More

What a complete disappointment!!! I would never go back again! From the minute we walked in the seater who turned out to be the owner was rude and obnoxious. We thought of leaving then but hoped it would get better from there. WE WERE MISTAKEN!!!!!...I met up with friends from out of state that we hadn't seen for a while. We were looking for a friendly atmosphere with good food, We DID NOT GET EITHER. Instead of being able to relax and enjoy our limited time together the owner was loud, obnoxious and was making snarky comments from the bar. It was insane! They bragged about everything being fresh and made from scratch however when we got our food which took forever, 6 of our group's meals were cold and average at best, nothing special. They took the better part of an hour to bring a replacement. When we got it, the food was still not right but we just ate it, just so that we could eat something before we had to drive back home. When we were leaving the owner said was everything good now. Since she asked, I told her the truth and said not really but we probably wouldn't be back. She basically said good I hope you don't and started yelling at us for wasting her parking spaces. Rather than argue with her I left. My husband said that after I left, she continued to loudly bad mouth me to the people at the bar. My family had a family business for years. My dad always taught us that the customer is always right and to treat them with respect. I did not get that courtesy from this business owner. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND IT I WOULD GO TO THE LOCAL GAS STATION FOR A CUP OF COFFEE BEFORE I WOULD EAT HERE!!! I FELT LIKE SHE TOOK AWAY FROM MY SPECIAL TIME WITH OUR FRIENDS. HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT!!More

HELLO FLAVORTOWN! On a girls trip in Mad Beach, we decided to go to Lisa's for brunch based on other TA reviews and then once we discovered we could walk there in 5 mins from our rental- HECK YES! So we were greeted and overly...welcomed by Lisa herself- and wow- what an informational meeting! She told us everything we needed to know and other stuff that will probably live in our brains rent free forever. Loved it! After the first taste of our food, we knew Lisa wasn't lying about her food being seasoned- bc it was TASTY!! The potatoes were the best taters I've had in a long time. Everything else was great too. And, the bragged that her cocktails were pretty loaded, but well made and mixed so that you'd never know what kind of trouble you were drinking yourself into- and she wasn't wrong there either- great dranks! We loved Lisa's Cafe and will definitely return if we're ever back in Mad Beach!More

Lisa's Cafe is easy access with plenty of parking. The customer service is fabulous. We have been there several times and the food is fresh, hot, and delicious. I had the Country Omelet with peppers, onions and potatoes with sausage gravy on top. My son...had the Deep South which was 2 eggs over easy on top of 2 biscuits with Lisa's homemade sausage gravy. Very good. The waiter stopped by several times to see if we needed anything and later on Lisa stopped by to check as well. Give it a try!More

Yes - however, this did not impede with us thoroughly enjoying our breakfast. We didn't notice any excessive noise. Just ate there again last weekend (08/2023).
