Their omelet selling point is that they're baked. which would be great, but baked whipped egg whites.... is a souffle. I had hoped they knew that and wouldnt bake the egg whites. My egg white omelet was literally so fluffy and whipped on the inside that when you tried to eat it, it just melted. Which was pretty gross. I... More

Our kitchen has been a family favorite for many, many, years. So many good memories over the years with my parents, my children, and now my grandchildren. You cannot find better food. The quality and freshness take awesome recipes to the next level. When we order the Apple Pancake, we put it in the middle of the table for everyone... More

Nice homey atmosphere and friendly staff, but the prices are high for breakfast. I had an omelette and iced tea for $17 before tip. The apple pancake they feature is about $15.

I have been going to Our Kitchen every Christmas Eve for breakfast with my family since I can remember. I have yet to find something about it I don't like. I usually get Belgian pancakes with hot chocolate (delicious), or pancakes the same. The waffles, pancakes, crepes, omelettes and everything else are absolutely great. The service is as friendly as... More

Had heard this small family restaurant was a great place to eat so I thought I would give it a try. I was not disappointed. Huge omelets and home made potatoes fried on the grill. But you need to save room for the spectacular apple pancake. Allow for approximately thirty minutes to make it so order it before or right... More

I have reviewed Our Kitchen before but I need to reevaluate. First and foremost let me say that I think the food at Our Kitchen is a step above breakfast food in the area. You can't compare it to a friendly Greek restaurant, which, even if they are quite good are not in the caliber of Our Kitchen. This is... More

Not fancy or trendy. Food is unremarkable. Good for a quick bite. The best thing about this spot is the lovely shop attached to the restaurant. Some lovely and unique decorating items.

Whenever I am in the area, I stop by for brunch or lunch over the past 20 years. The food and service are good. The little shop is always interesting. I love the biscuits and the omelets.

I have coming to Our Kitchen for over 15 years and am never disappointed. The have wonderful omelets that are baked. They are light and fluffy. The apple pancake is a treat. It is enough for 4 people. The atmosphere is cute. The gift shop has lots of one of a kind items. The service is always top notch.
