I had the "menage a trike" which was a french toast type breakfast and it was excellent. This is a great breakfast place, omelletes and eggs were excellent.

Do not go here if you are looking for a COVID-safe place to eat. This review is based solely on that. Servers and cooks not wearing masks. Staff visibly coughing and sneezing. Sadly, I barely touched my food because of this and I regret stopping...here. Condiments are still positioned on the table and were not changed out after each table left. Covid simply doesn’t seem to be a concern for this restaurant at all.More

When we saw all the people waiting outside to be seated, we stopped in for brunch. The employees were all so friendly and we were able to speak to the hands-on owner too! The food was fresh and came out quickly. I would highly recommend...the fresh biscuits. Overall, the experience was great. We’ll be back for the banana French toast next time!More

This is definitely a go-to place in Clayton for breakfast. Great country fried steak and eggs, hawaiian bread, and coffee.

We read the excellent reviews for this restaurant and decided to try it. Upon arrival we noticed that the tables were not spaced apart. The staff were not wearing masks. During this COVID pandemic I do not not feel that they were exercising proper caution...in protecting their guests. We leftMore

Food and service were great! I ordered a three egg omelet that was stuffed with goodness and came with a perfect biscuit and and perfectly done hash browns. All that for $9.25. My husband got two biscuit sandwiches with egg and sausage and covered in...gravy. He also chose hash browns over grits. His charge was $9. The generous amount of food allowed us to skip lunch. We were not hungry until early evening. We were so pleased with breakfast, the next morning we were back. He got pancakes, bacon, eggs for $8.25. I got two eggs, biscuit, bacon, hash browns for $7.50. Skipped lunch and supper and had a light snack later in the evening. I felt the prices were good. Especially since we were able to skip other meals. The staff wore masks. There is free parking. The decor is bike related, of course. It was busy both mornings and the staff kept up with the orders and we did not see any long wait times. Breakfast is served all hours they are open. They serve breakfast and lunch only. A great dining experience.More

The food was great - French dip sandwich, and my lifelong friend had a turkey wrap and said it was good. Nice staff, nice customers, and I had a great lunch there a few days ago. I recommend it.

My husband and I were on a trip to visit our family when we decided to stop for breakfast but did not want to eat at a big chain restaurant. We spotted The Rusty Bike Cafe and quickly pulled in. We were seated immediately. The...decor is all about motorcycles and there is an antique Indian setting outside. Our server took our beverage and food order it seemed like as soon as we put our menus down. We both had The Roadster with comes with one of the best chicken fried steaks I have had outside of Texas, eggs cooked to order, fluffy biscuits, great hashbrowns, and a mixed berry jelly. Our food arrived quickly and hot. The prices of all their breakfast items are very reasonable. The servers are very good and fast.More

We are open 7 days a week, 7-3. We are closed thanksgiving and Christmas. That Wednesday before will be a busy day. But the waits are generally short unless you have a large group.
