“Great Breakfast, nice setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013

We were looking for a place for breakfast near where we were staying, and we saw all the cars parked at the Log Cabin Cafe. So we decided to give it a try and we are certainly glad we did. The atmosphere is great, with a comfortable waiting area upstairs. We ordered Eggs Benedict, Biscuits and Gravy, and a Breakfast Burrito. All three meals were very tasty, however, the portions are too much. You could easily share a plate, particularly between and adult and a child. And while the food was very good, the prices were very high. Breakfast for 3 of us was $45 before the tip. We would definately eat here again.

“Worth the Wait”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2013

Voted "Best Breakfast" was correct. Good food and rustic atmosphere. Many others felt the same way and we had to wait about an hour to get in (which I usually am not likely to do). The service was personal and quick but not rushed. Flavorful food and nice selection, Worth the wait if you have to.

“Tremendous value; yummy yummy yummy!!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

We came here for breakfast... A table of four during the week around 9am so seating was not an issue. Walked into this cute dining room and was seated immediately. I ordered a smoke salmon scramble with their homemade smoked salmon; it was phenomenal!!! The perfect amount of capers, mushrooms, and eggs that were not over cooked; really set up this dish for a hungry eater's delight!

I am still savoring this dish, and next time will probably order it again... Is that terrible?

“Great breakfast place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

We stopped by this morning for breakfast what a cool little place. The waitress was friendly and seated us within a few minutes. The menu is short by nice with many specials. The pancakes were some of the best I have had in a long time. Looking forward to returning next time I am in the area must place to go.
