We went for Sunday Brunch on Vanderbilt's Family weekend so we probably hit the restaurant at its absolute worst time in terms of wait. The line to order was easily 50 minutes long. The restaurant is actually quite large with several rooms of tables, which doesn't match up with the fact that they have just two cashier stations where you... More

Fido's needs to adjust their order process. We were in line 20 minutes to make our order, but after doing that we went to table and selected from many empty ones. In other words, they have space, but poor order flow. We were there for breakfast and had an omelet, pancakes, and some creative coffee. All were good except they... More

We have visited fido's many times. Waiting 40 minutes in line to order is part of the experience/charm. Would love it if you could buy coffee while waiting like at the Pfunky Griddle. Today, though, when we reached the order counter, the staff unapologetically let us know that if we wanted any food from the kitchen, it would be a... More

As many people will tell you, they came here because the Pancake Pantry line was too long and it was outdoors. We SPECIFICALLY came to ate here, and the line was still long, but it was mercifully indoors. So don't come in a rush! It is a mellow scene, so plan to arrive with your own mellow head. The food...

We went to Hillsboro to spend a nice holiday on Labor day. We wanted to go to Fido since they were recommended online for their gluten-free options. Afterwards, we were going to a movie at the Belcourt. We got to Fido and waited in line for at least 45 minutes to place our order. We considered going someplace else in... More

Fido's has delicious salads, breakfast dishes, and desserts. The coffee always has a cute heart swirl. I have been here with work buddies as well as family and it never disappoints. Parking can be tricky, so carpool if you can.

We had originally planned to go to the Pancake Pantry but the unfeasibly long queue lead us to the more low key and realistic looking option a mere 90m away at Fido! This was a great decision. There was a bit of a queue inside at about 10am but this moved along quickly and the service was friendly and efficient... More

I heard very good opinions about Fido, but it didn't impressed me. The food is tasty but nothing outstanding. The appetizers are cheap, but the side was really small (at least my roasted sweet potatoes). I think maybe is a better option for breakfast. You'd better wear long sleeves, I was almost freezing!

Almost always a long line that moves quickly. It's annoying because it lines up back by the bathrooms making that area difficult to get to if needed. Photography for sale on the walls, a barn-like door and 2 or three concrete floored rooms with plenty of tables make it open and loud. The food is fantastic. My fries were too... More
