The bad news is, they don't serve dinner. The good news is, they serve great breakfasts and lunches. The Philly cheesesteak is fantastic. There are lots of tasty things to choose from on their extensive menu and the meals are well priced. It's a very popular cafe, so you might have to wait for a table, but it is worth... More

Stopped here for breakfast during our stay at Minerals Hotel. The food was very fresh. The wait staff was very friendly. The food came out quickly. Great coffee. When we left, there was a long line of people waiting to be seated - definitely a sign for a popular spot.

I went there for breakfast on a Saturday morning, and the place was busy, although seating was available right away. The had many selections, especially for pancakes, waffles, etc. I had an omelette that was prepared exactly as I asked; very tasty. Nice, friendly wait staff and housed in a lovely old building.

Went here for breakfast and the food was amazing!! About 20 kinds of pancakes. Kids had blueberry and one had chocolate chip, and one had cinnamon and they were all amazing. Giant omlettes filled with anything you can imagine. Amazing Belgian waffles. Great service.

From eggs and bacon to meatloaf you can't go wrong eating at this purple restaurant. The wait staff is friendly and the food is terrific. If you just want a cup of coffee and a muffin that's okay too. Enjoy!

We went to The Mixing Bowl for a family breakfast. The servers were friendly, the food was delicious, and the prices were competitive. We would definitely go back.
