Was recommended by a local and didn't disappoint ! Portions were huge , food selection was huge! Service was great. Was there for breakfast and had a Thanksgiving Omelet while others in our group had pancakes, waffles and sandwiches. Everyone loved their selection. Wish I had more room in my stomach!

This place makes wonderful breakfast food, and has very good (not Urban Bean good, but very good) coffee. Portions are large, and they handle both eggs (huevos rancheros, omelets, over easy just right) and French toast/pancakes with skill and style. Not the cheapest, but it has a hipster vibe and outdoor tables to make you think you're getting your money's... More

Food was good not great. Service was off. I was getting a carry out. Gal at the register could smile, smiles go a long way. I felt like telling her, listen, I'm on my way to work too! Buck up! Ok, back to food. Large portions is true. I'm a big eater & I could have split this easily with... More

Hudson Cafe was simple, but delicious. The service was quick and thorough, and the food delicious. The corned beef hash was particularly delicious, and the cappuccino was even great, which usually isn't the case at diners!

This isn't the best breakfast place I've ever eaten, but it was pretty darn good! My friends egg's Benedict was excellent, no really, excellent! But my 'thanksgiving omelet (3 eggs, turkey sausage, spinach and swiss) was a little dry. Service was outstanding! Coffee constantly full. Right up there as really good overall experience!

Service was friendly and efficient. Large portions. Stack of pancakes covered the whole plate. Our friend ate 1/3 of the pancakes and took the remainder home for dinner. Good thing she ate 1/3. Anything less wouldn't have fit in the take out box!

This place will remind you of going to lunch upstairs in Hudson's. A must have is the Maurice salad with the original Hudson's dressing.
