Reviewed April 7, 2013

Do not go to Heidi's! Their food was not "great." I had bisquits and gravy, and the gravy was horrible! Red Hut Cafe has better tasting food and better prices!!!

“Always busy ... that's a good sign.”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

We've been at Heidi's a few times and every time there are tons of people. The breakfast is absolutely great and meets any expectations. Thanks for my favorite (Eggs Benedict) always great!

“Very average, disappointing pancakes.”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

It was quite busy when we were there, so this might explain our experience. My fiancé received his breakfast 5-10mins before mine, no big deal but my 6 stack pancake arrived, with 5 pancakes. They served up the 6th pancake, which was white and verging on being slightly uncooked, on a separate plate. When the coffee was poured the waitress was in such a rush it was dribbled across the table every time! Good omelette but pancakes were not the best. I love pancakes and these were pretty disappointing. I also asked if I could have 1/2 blueberry and 1/2 strawberry topping, apparently this would cost $1.50 extra because of how it would 'go in the computer'. Come on Heidi's!!!

“Omelet was barely room temperture”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

I ordered the special house omelet with Monterey Jack cheese, bacon and avocado and thought it tasted ok it was barely warm and the cheese on top wasn't melted. The hash brown potatoes were also not hot and burned as well. My husband had the crepes with apple compote which looked like they opened a can of pie filling and spooned it on top. The corned beef hash was clearly out of a can. I was surprised when the bill came to over $30. Stay home and cook an egg. It ill be better. The high side is that the servers were very cordial and made consistent effort to bring coffee and ask if there was any thing we neded.

“Great food and spot on service.”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

There is a great selection of food, and they have service down to a science without seeming rude or pushy. If there is a big crowd waiting, it won't be long. Be patient, because it's worth it!
