Food was fresh. Really delicious egg options! Our wait staff was really attentive and friendly. We sat outside under an amazing maple tree. ❤️

Crazy, busy morning, one waitress and the best breakfast in Old Orchard! So much food we couldn't finish it all! Fabulous omelet overstuffed with sweet peppers and ham, raisin toast with lots butter. Just yummy!! STOP here for breakfast..on Cascade Rd.

We frequently visit our student at a nearby college and have visited a number of breakfast restaurants, many of which are fantastic. Good Thyme is excellent and joins my list as a "top 5" in the area! I ordered Texas Toast French Toast, my wife...had the raisin French Toast, and our 22 year old had the cinnamon chip pancakes. There were 6 other breakfast specials, other egg options, and a ton of other items but alas, one has to choose! The service was quick and super friendly, very down home, and the food was perfect. We had about a 15 minute wait which was totally comfortable on the benches outside. We ordered, ate, chatted and laughed without any pressure at all, and were out within an hour! We will absolutely come back!More

Been coming to OOB for a few years now and was looking for a new place for breakfast. On a recommendation from family we tried Good Thyme. There is outside dining but my assumption is it was not offered due to lack of staff. Unfortunately,...that’s a sign of the times and not a slam on the restaurant. Place was packed with locals (good sign!) and the two servers were stressed to the max and handled it extremely well. Food was way above average, service was friendly and attentive. Only negative comment I have is because of the size of the restaurant when it was full it was very noisy. That being said we will be back.More

Nice staff, good short order breakfast food at very reasonable prices and open bright and early in the morning. Really, what more do you need for breakfast?

After reading very good reviews about this diner, we decided to check it out. Breakfast was excellent and service was kind and fast. Omelet and home fries were not greasy at all and very tasty.

My wife and I just returned from a 3 day/2 night stay in OOB. We went to the Good Thyme Cafe our second morning there. Given the time of the year (first week after Lab Day), a lot of stuff in OOB is closed for...the season. The day before, we went to JJ's in the center of town and it was also good but there was a wider variety of menu items at Good Thyme. I had the lobster scramble which was made with scrambled eggs, lobster, cheddar cheese, and chives - it was fantastic! Add to that a grilled English muffin and good quality home fries and I was a happy camper. My wife had the cinnamon chip pancakes and they were also great. Excellent service that kept the coffee refills coming. About the only negative I can say is that we had to wait about 20 minutes to get a table and there were open tables inside when we were seated. I suspect they were a little short staffed due to COVID or the time in the season. But the food and service was worth waiting for. We will definitely go to the Good Thyme Cafe on our next trip to OOB!More

Once again low staffing causing long wait times. Food average but could have been better. Bacon was burned and eggs runny If you are a party of 4 they add a tip of 20% onto your bill and you must pay it. They decide the...tip not you. Staff knows this and is rudeMore

We did not have a good time here. Our waitress was super sweet and the food was tasty, but we did not get everything we ordered. In fact we asked 3 seperate employees for our sides. When our breakfasts were 3/4 done we finally received...the rest of our food...nothing like ice cold eggs to go with that delicious pastrami hash Jo ordered and which arrived at our table 15 minutes after the rest of our breakfast. But of course none of the employees I very politely asked for a Coffee refill had brought that yet. The "owner" did however arrive at our table faster than the glass of water I asked for...not to try and set things right, but to literally berate us for asking for what we ordered. Being service industry veterans we understand mistakes get made. We did not berate anyone we weren't rude or pushy. The owner immediately brought us our check, but our forgotten sides weren't expedited or ordered on the fly but merely put in the que. Our waitress got a great tip. Here's tip for the owner...we own property here and we would have come back, often,If you hadn't been so rude. We didn't want anything for free but an apology would have been nice, and appropriate. Just because the egg yolk is soft doesn't mean it's cooked right. Over easy is a very different egg from over medium. The owner said " the egg is runny, right there. RIGHT WHERE? If you have to search for the runny yolk it's not over easy!More

This was one of the best breakfasts I have had at OOB. The waitress was so nice. The food was amazing. I had the croissant French toast with strawberry rhubarb sauce and whipped cream. It was one of the specials and it was fabulous. My...husband’s omelette was very good. They deserve their rating of 5 stars.More

Amazing food at this wonderful restaurant! Mike made the BEST omelette I ever had in my life, and my partner felt the same way about hers. Large portions of tasty food, how can you go wrong! And great friendly service from Apryl! We sat down...and we were drinking coffee less than a minute after we got there. She checked in regularly to make sure everything was all right. Couldn't ask for a better experience at this wonderful restaurant!More

My husband and I were staying at a nearby campground and thought we’d give this place a try. It felt like local-yokel kind of place. Everyone seemed to know each other. I thought that was a good sign. It was. We both had the eggs...Benedict which were wonderful as well as the home fries. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff made this place a winner.More
