Visited area for soccer tournament/showcase. Really nice, very clean, healthy breakfast and lunch. Seasonal specials, specialty items and standard food all cooked very good. Came here the 3 mornings we were in town. Great food and service everyone. Pancakes are huge the size of a...dinner plate. Price similar to breakfast chains like I Hop, cracker barrel but food is made to order so looks and tastes so much better. Great staff and had table separations for COVID. About a 20 minute wait each morning but we'll worth the wait. They also have a side/separate door just for just carryout. The 3 days the 3 of us tried different things and absolutely everything was fantastic.More

Great food and friendly staff. I highly recommend this great restaurant for breakfast or lunch. Fresh squeezed orange juice and omlettes are terrific!

We love this beautiful and friendly dinning establishment. The food is consistently fresh, delicious and well-presented. The management team should provide tutorials. They get it right. Today, we were blessed to have Kailyn again, as our server. She is incredible and despite our special requests...(no avocado on the avocado wrap), she could not have been more accommodating, friendly and helpful. We have never had a bad or even neutral experience. Positive all the way.More

We had lunch at Half Day Cafe after exercise class. The menu has several reasonably priced options for lunch. Service is excellent but not intrusive. It's a relatively small restaurant but the noise level is low. If you like BLTs, I recommend their BLT that...comes with Applewood Smoked Bacon -- it was delicious!More

The only juice is apple or orange. No rye toast. The onions, peppers, and mushrooms in the omelets are not grilled, just added raw. The fruit is bad. Overpriced

The Half Day Cafe in Cincinnati on Wyoming Ave serves a lovely vegetarian friendly meal in Picturesque Wyoming. Not vegetarian? Not to worry. The goetta hash and applewood smoked bacon are great, but the star? Ginger Broiled Grapefruit! Yes, you read me right. A half...grapefruit covered in a ginger sugar concoction, then off to the broiler. There are many other creative dishes on the menu as well. So if you have the chance, make your way over, but as the name implies, you better get there early because they close at 2:30. I dropped Murphy at Adorable Dog in Reading to get a new doggy doo and some new fancy bandannas. While I waited I stopped in for breakfast. Happy Murphy-Cam! #AdorableDog #MurphyCam #PeterTeremi #dogGrooming #YearOfTheFlood #halfdaycafeMore

We found this gem on TA for breakfast. It's clean, friendly & the food is great. Bottomless coffees and generous helpings. I had the sweet potato pancake and it was delicious. The best advert I can give you is, we went back again the next...day!More

Half day because it is only open for breakfast and lunch. Probably only know to locals. The service was good and the breakfast was great.

It was not busy when I arrived....2 tables occupied. Seated right away, and waitress took drink order and brought it in few minutes. Then I waited 20 minutes for her to return for my order and then 20 mins for order to be delivered (ordered...lite combo). She did keep my coffee cup filled. But, does anyone smile that works there? When I got my bill, at the bottom was suggested tip.....starting at 18% up to 25%! Very tacky! If you’re attentive and smile then you might earn that.More

The Half Day Cafe probably gets much of its business from people who work, live or visit the town of Wyoming adjacent to Cincinnati proper. We were visiting and looking for a lunch spot, and walked in. It is worth going to if you're a...few miles away and hungry. Real nice atmosphere, very good food, reasonably priced, quick service, sort of a blend of modern and old-time restaurant.More

We bring my parents here 1-2 x a yr when they visit from out of state. The place is always clean and warm, the menu offerings interesting and tasty. Their expresso drinks, served in oversized cups, are always a treat . My folks both got...a cappuccino. Mom thought hers tasted weak. Soon after, Dad agreed. They are reluctant to return things, When my daughter got a refill on her regular coffee my dad asked the waitress " Can you top mine off? Its pretty weak." She started to pour some in his mug then flinched, pulled back and said " Oh I cant give you any more . Otherwise I would have to charge you for another cup." No acknowledgement of the weak coffee, apologizing or offering a replacement. But a veiled threat of an extra charge? I hope management will read this, take note and brief the staff that this single encounter now erases all our other good times here. Words/attitude really do matter with customer service.More

The food here was delicious. Can’t deny that. But our granddaughter left a hair bow with sentimental value there - totally our fault - and when we called and they found it, and said they were going to hold it for us to pick up...the next day, we were very thankful. But when I arrived the next day they couldn’t find it, and the entire “oh well, it must have gotten thrown out” attitude displayed by multiple employees including the manager, left a retroactive bad taste in my mouth for the food we had the day before. A simple task ... lost and found ... and they failed. Sorry ... but we are very upset by this inability to perform basic promised functions, and we will never return.More
