We had breakfast here...my husband had a breakfast scrambler (hash browns, egg, piece of ham with cheese slices on top w/toast & I had french toast. Both were really good! We then decided to share a figgy hobbin. It was delicious! Waitress was really friendly.

Old fashioned cafe with lots of stools around a counter, plus a few tables and booths. Also a bakery, so good pastries. Can't go wrong, even with things you can't pronounce.

This is the 2nd time we have been to Red Rooster, and were greatly disappointed. Service was poor, the pasties were dry and flavorless, and were only edible with major dosages of chili sauce. The figgyhobbin was made with the same pastry dough as the...More
