Last time we were here was 2012 and I left a raving review. Nothing has changed. LOVE this place! Wish it was close to home. So old fashioned with delicious food, coffee, and hot chocolate! One of the highlights of our weekend getaway to TC. Ellen, our server, was great! Go there and enjoy!

Our server was a veteran in her profession. We brought four hangry kids in and she had a smile on their faces before they settled in. The manager was constantly aware of any needs of the patrons. This proved to be a quick, tasty & economical option, on a cold snowy morning.

Now I understand why Round's is always so busy. Food and service is great in a retro diner atmosphere. Homemade corned beef hash is a beautiful start to anyone's busy day.

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.
