Nice neighborhood breakfast spot. The food is excellent. Be prepared to spend extra time as everything is fresh and prepared to order. The kitchen is small and staff is limited--but worth waiting for. The prices are fair for the food quality. Overall, a cozy atmosphere.

Good food if you want to wait hours for your food. Poor service. Won't go back. Ok for lunch, but you will be late back to work.

We waited over 30 minutes for food and it came out cold. The waitress brought it back to the cook and was not happy. The owner brought a new dish right as we were about to leave and I ate by myself. It was not that good by I was extremely hungry by that time. .

Limited breakfast menu. I had one of the specialty omelets, the OHIO. It was good but the only potato option is country potatoes, large chunks of potatoes with light seasoning that tasted freezer burned. The coffee was average, nothing special. I was sitting at the counter with a good view of the kitchen. I saw the servers grabbing handfuls of... More

I've been to Sweet Pea several times now. I take out-of-towners there for a special treat in an environment where you can easily converse with your companions. Everything I've ever had there has been absolutely wonderful, and the service has always been great. Slightly pricey, not bad, though, and worth every penny for the quality and service!

I always liked this place but the price of this place is getting higher and higher. For this type of diner, the price is a bit too high. They make some good food though.

I used to like this place when it first opened about 7 years ago, but now I dread thinking about it. The service is SLOW. We waited 20 min for a waitress to bring water and take our order and then waited another 45 min for food....there were only 4 other tables occupied. While waiting for our food we heard... More

This was not my first visit. Everything is so good I had to bring my Dad. Not the ordinary menu items. Even is you're looking for salmon for breakfast, you won't be disappointed. We enjoy the use of fresh vegetables and fruit. We will definitely return

The atmosphere is not what I expected of a little diner. The service was slow (and we were the only people there) . Food was really greasy.
