“Average food, higher than average prices”
Reviewed June 3, 2012 via mobile

We were excited by the reviews, but our experience at Don's was average. The food was mediocre at best, and the portions were a bit small for the prices ($8-$14 per item). Blueberry pancakes were loaded with blueberries. Bacon was cooked as requested. Turnover of tables was slow - tables sat dirty for a while as customers waited to sit down. We won't be returning.

loved place for breakfast, great for kids too. Omelets with fresh veggies and potatoes. Not your ordinary coffee shop.

“Home cookin!”
Reviewed February 21, 2012

I enjoyed my experience at Don's. My husband and I went there this weekend. Our service was great! I ordered the hamburger and chili and hubby ordered the Eggs Benedict. We both really enjoyed our food, especially the fries. The prices were very reasonable too.
