The food is very good for a once in awhile treat. If your on a diet or health conscious probably not the best place to eat. I also think it's way over priced for breakfast. But once in awhile it's a nice treat

I was very surprised at this lovely restaurant. The menu items were unique and everything we ordered was excellent. They even did a great job accommodating my odd diet needs. The server was also extremely polite and professional.

Went there as a group of 16, many of us were leaving back to Europe later in the day. Waitress coped well with the orders, food was uniformly good but surprised many of us with the portion sizes so "doggy bags" were needed to take the extra back. I had the Berry Berry crepe which was delicious as I didn't... More

The food was better than expected, even with such good rating. I had the stuffed waffle, it was amazing. Lots of strawberries and bananas plus I added pecans. The strawberry cream cheese was fantastic in the waffle (it tasted like cake batter ) By far the best waffle I have ever had. Everyone else had great food as well. The... More

My 19 year old was the only one in our family not to experience Brunch Cafe, and he truly enjoyed his meal and the atmosphere. Their gluten free bread is good, and so is their turkey sausage.

The food is good and it's always busy. The prices are a bit high and careful if you get sides of anything it adds up fast. They always have unique specials. Lots of choices. Waffles, pancakes and French toast are all good choices. They have plenty of seating and good parking. The wait staff is good and friendly.

This restaurant is a perfect little gem. I have visited 2 locations. Consistency is service and top quality food. Their French toasts are creative and tasty, and the family has enjoyed the waffles, pancakes, and mimosas, as well. I can't even try their lunch menu because I'm so hooked on the breakfast cuisine!
