Great little cafe sort of out of the way, but well worth the visit. Excellent food choices. Portions are just the right size. Service is good. Recommend this cafe to everyone.

I have eaten at the Skyline Cafe 5 times. The food is okay. However, I don't think the food matches the price. I have ordered Salmon, steak and the special and the bill always gives me pause. I recommend that you come for drinks which are excellent and enjoy appetizers.

One of a kind. Food was presented so nicely. Very unique offerings. Food was delicious. We all got something different and were very satisfied with our choices. The fried spinach was extremely tasty. I also like that they offer half servings for the smaller appetite. We werent rushed at all. Overall relaxing and enjoyable evening. We will definitely be going... More

This was our first visit, we had lunch. I had the lamb burger, my daughter had the blackened chicken breast. The Burger was good, juicy and had a good flavor. The chicken breast was small but had a good flavor, little more of a kick than she was expecting. The pasta salad was okay, could have been colder. We tried... More

I have included a a standard pesto recipe at the end of this review, since the chef apparently does not know what pesto is. The pesto at Skylines Cafe (on the Seafood Pesto Primavera) was olive oil and lemon juice over penne with maybe a tablespoon of chopped basil (which I suspect was dried not fresh) and a pinch of...

We arrived about 15 minutes late for our reservation, but as it was a Wednesday evening, it wasn't a problem. Our service was great, our food was tasty, and the restaurant was clean and well staffed. We noticed a lot of people who seemed to be regular patrons, who knew the waitstaff. That says a lot for an area with... More
