We live just minutes away and heard a lot about this place. Finally, decided to try... This is very cool, fun location at the small airport with little planes seated on the ground, right next to the cafe. But this is where the fun ends... The decor is plain, but acceptable keeping in mind that the whole wall of glass... More

I've eaten here several times and have enjoyed the freshly prepared egg dishes and fruit. Good coffee and fun to watch the small planes take off and land. It's a small cafe that serves quality breakfasts and lunch.

The cafe is located at the Air Field. It is well off the main roads and may make you wonder why anyone would travel to the place. Once you get there be prepared - it is a building at the airport, unassuming. The decor is plain. I wasn't a fan of the chairs (sort of a small bistro style chair).... More

I visited Nancy's air cafe on a whim and i was not disappointed. I had the plane burger and it was good. It came with chips and pickles for around 10 dollars. I love aviation and being able to eat lunch and watch aircraft is awesome. The staff was friendly and efficient.

We live locally and have talked about going here countless times for breakfast but, hadn't until recently. A last minute change in plans and we were quickly at the Air Field Cafe. I have a love for Eggs Benedict, I will absolutely return to have them here again. Just a great place that we both wish we had begun to... More

Been there multiple times in the past primarily for the kids to watch the planes while we eat; food is decent although their selection is small. The one star is because we went this morning (Father’s Day) prior to opening at 8am. When the owner arrived right at 8 to a line of people he was gleeful and rude as... More

Very delicious salad at Nancy's Airfield Cafe a few weeks ago. Was surprised at how many planes landed and took off from this small airport. Plan on going back

The food is always very fresh and local. Tried the cod the other day and Nancy gave it such flavor the it was the best I had. The menu changes a little during the seasons but everything she makes is well worth it. Like their breakfast and lunches also.

We visited Nancy's for the first time today. It was a beautiful Sunday morning with temperatures in the 60's. Not a cloud in the sky. When we arrived the waiting line was out the door and onto the sidewalk. We approached the hostess and we were told it would be a 15-20 minute wait. That was wrong, wrong, wrong. The... More
