We have been here many times and the food is always fresh and the menu items tasty. The service is also consistently excellent. Have the fresh squeezed orange juice or the stuffed french toast. If you order the corned beef hash, don't expect the canned variety you will get other places. It's homemade and quite tasty. The build your own... More

I occasionally dine here for lunch. The staff are friendly and the food is decent. I like the option of carrot sticks in lieu of chips for a more healthful alternative side to the sandwiches they serve. A few varieties of coffee as well; I recommend the boldest option.

Traveled with vegetarian friends who found this local restaurant. We ALL loved it. Good was delicious. I got waffles, others got omelets, additional breakfast. One friend got curry. The smores coffee was awesome! Our waitress was very friendly and prompt. We very much enjoyed this restaurant and would recommend it!

Loved the Durango Chicken sandwich with Swiss sourdough bread, peppered bacon, roasted poblano sauce, Jack cheese and cilantro lime mayonnaise.Equally good was the Mediterranean Chicken with artichoke hearts, roasted red peppers, feta and hummus . BUT. my friend found the white plastic stopper that is found... More

Manager has an attitude as big as the great outdoors. Coffee is typical. Snacks are tiny. Menu looks OK, but reality is disappointing.

Working in a small town can be rewarding, but one has to put up with limitations in culinary experiences. Fortunately, Third Coast is THE breakfast/lunch blessing for our community. Freshly prepared food in a comfortable environment, with outdoor seating. Many menu choices, with some specialty items. The portions are large but the prices are fair. They have gluten free bread...

When I asked my daughter what she thought of our breakfast here this morning she said delish-a-lish! Nice portion sizes, great kids menu and great variety. Definitely a great breakfast spot for those looking for a local eatery rather than chain.

This is the type of restaurant that keeps you going back! Fresh, different, organic, and vegetarian options. We go very often for breakfast, and lunch. The only negative is that it isn't open for dinner!!
