This little spot has some of the best eats for breakfast, brunch, or lunch... And apparently, they do dinner now too! I'll have to check that out. While the food is great, service is still a little lacking and downright non-existent when the place gets busy. Oh well, at least the food did not suck!

Liked this place much more than orchard cafe. Clean place with a lot of space. Service attentive and friendly. Nice variety on menu. Pumpkin pancakes were great and very generous with egg portions. Would go again.

The portions at Benny's Place are plentiful! I always have taken leftovers home. The food is flavorful and prepared how I ask. The service is top-notch, too. Sunday mornings are very busy. Be prepared for a short wait. The food is worth the wait!

Alex was an excellent server. He went over the menu with us because we were first time customers. The food was good. They serve large portions and the prices are cheap. We had the Philly steak sandwich, the Reuben and Bacon Cheeseburger. All sandwiches came with fries AND soup or salad. We really really enjoyed the chicken noodle soup and... More

Have eaten here twice recently and both times I went for the egg and bacon quesadillas. They are more like a burrito, in that they are rolled up instead of flat, but it was a yummy and filling breakfast. Service was friendly and orders arrived quickly. Get the quesadilla for breakfast!

My husband and I go here at least once a month for dinner and we love it. The soups and salads are great, try the raspberry dressing. Rolls are warm and have never been disappointed in the quality of food. They now serve cocktails and their margaritas are delicious and come at a good price.
