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.

I met a friend here for lunch. She had chosen an outside table. (not my first choice). Luckily there was a breeze and we were in the shade. Our waitress was flighty and slow. There is a good choice of dishes for breakfast and lunch. My pastrami sandwich was tasty and large (I took half home) and the sweet potato... More

I ordered two salads to takeaway, a Mediterranean and an International. They were both good. We preferred the International. They were made fairly quickly while I waited. The indoor and outdoor seating both looked nice and the service was friendly.

We went for breakfast and just thought it was ok. The eggs were over cooked, and the toast was under cooked. We might try again since we have heard good things about this place. Maybe it was just an off day for the cook. It was a little warm in there.
