We observed the oversized salads and second guessed our sandwich choices. My toasted cheese sandwich was huge. Waffle fries were season and crispy. The tomato soap was very cheesy and well seasoned. My friend's Monty Cristo was very large and over stuffed. The restaurant had outdoor and indoor seating. The menu was varied. I would describe it as upscale dinner... More

We've eaten here about 4 times recently. They serve some nice daily specials, and a Mediterranian salad my husband always gets.

Always enjoy breakfast or lunch there. My favorite is the egg white Omelett with grilled eggplant, hummus and ricotta. Salads are great . My husband likes the soup and Greek salad

We stopped by for a quick bite while Christmas shopping. Have not been here in a long time, but it is good as it has always been. We both had great salads.

I've noticed that this cafe has decent reviews, so I'm hoping we just came on an off day. They weren't very busy, so my husband and I decided to have brunch. Most of the waitresses seemed distracted, and were always rushing around. We got seated and our order was taken quickly and politely. Our food was served quickly as well.... More

I came here with family for breakfast. It's in a strip shopping mall and has that type of atmosphere, although you do have the choice of sitting outdoors or indoors. The breakfast foods were delicious. I had a scrumptious omelette. Service was good. It's a very local place, but if you're in the area, do stop in.

Went to East Lake Café for Breakfast, and ordered their crepes with a few changes. They custom made my meal the way I asked them to, so I really enjoyed it. Found the new items on their menu a nice change.
