Always good and dependable for breakfasts. Very good coffee and a bottomless cup. Buckwheat pancakes, eggs properly cooked with soft yolks when requested. Omelettes nicely served, as well. Rounds has been in the same location, seemingly for for ever. Friendly, long time staff.

Ended up here when another favorite TC breakfast place closed down. There is a nice historical story told on the front of the menu, which makes one think that they are probably making breakfast the same way they did the day the doors opened. Good call! Nice sized portions, they bring you a personal carafe of coffee, they use real... More

Standard breakfast fare with good portion sizes. They were friendly and quick to accommodate a request to substitute potatoes for toast due to a gluten allergy (for a small up charge). We did seem to wait longer than others. The food was fresh and hot.

We were referred to this restaurant by locals as a favorite breakfast spot! It did not disappoint! Portions were plentiful and they offered a variety of pancakes which were delicious!

Enjoyed going and eating with the locals. Pot of coffee sat on the table and the order was up in minutes. Hearty American potatoes, homemade toast, eggs the way you like them and bacon. Service was quick and friendly.

We had the corner beef hash which was the Best we ever had and Toni's hash browns with ham and eggs. Outstanding meal and the wheat bread (house recipe) was a treat. Friendly staff, fine atmosphere. This is a must!

I'm by no means above the hole in the wall place and this place qualifies for that title. The exterior looks like a re-purposed ice cream shack from 1978 and the inside looks like a time capsule circa 1952. No biggie, give me good food on a Saturday morning and I'll take it every time. However, not so much. I... More

Enjoyed the morning special, Eggs Benedict for 7.38, excellent, the homemade breads are delicious. Vegetable omelette was equally tasty. OM eggs were more over well, but still OK. Prices are very reasonable. Great clean local eatery. Friendly staff.
