I went here for an early morning breakfast, and got the scrambled eggs, turkey sausage and hash-browns. The turkey sausage was frankly gross, badly spiced and tasted like very low quality meat. The eggs and hashbrowns were decent, but on balance, I felt like the breakfast was overpriced for what it was. That is when the waiter noticed that I had eaten just the tiniest corner of the hash browns, and to my shock asked, not rhetorically, if the turkey sausage wasn't very good. He was attentive in a serious way, in part because he cared enough to have been mentioning exactly this item from the menu as not having been eaten by almost any customer. He deserves a medal, because very few staff at diners care enough to try to actively improve the place. When you go, ASK the waitstaff what they think about your order!

I have been coming to Fred 62 for a couple of years now. Service is always hit or miss. Food is ok if not mediocre. I usually come here for the huba huba pancake. It's basically pancake with banana and peanut butter. I think it was 8$. It's an ok place. If only they would have some consistency in their staff.

Man oh man do the staff at fred 62 seem to be having a bad day. We started off inconveniencing them by ordering some coffees, then inconveniencing them even more by ordering breakfast. After the long wait of our food to arrive it was slapped onto the table and by then after the Terrible service and average looking food we had already lost our appetites.
Hopefully the staff were having a really bad day and their service has improved infact we couldn't even bring ourselves to tip them

Pros
Lots of tables outside in the sun and always available
Fred 62 - good catchy name

Cons
Food was ok
Service was terrible

The restaurant has a slight arty / alternate feel to it which was nice. Had lunch op the patio. Menu has some original items. Food was of good quality and price was reasonable.

Stopped off on the way to golf and the very pleasant waitress suggested this and wow, did it deliver. One of the 10
Best breakfast dishes I've ever eaten. (You might need to be a chorizo fan.) We've eaten here many times and always liked it, always been satisfied. Very nice vibe.
