“Breakfast at the Wild Plum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

We had breakfast at the Wild Plum, it was delicious, it is in the downtown area but not along the main highway, it was around the corner from Denny's. Small cafe/bakery with delicious breakfast, & lunch choices. Homemade items, bread. I ordered a ham scramble with veggies...It came with some home made toast bread, a generous scramble, fresh fruit. Nice presentation, eclectic environment. Service a little slow, and he did not refill coffee, but, their was a pot on the back wall so we refilled our own. Reasonable price for the amount of food, and you could buy a few bakery items. My breakfast was about $8.95 for my designed omelet, with Virginia baked ham. My husband ordered a Southwest Omellet with Avocado, salsa, it was tasty, $8.95 and toast, and fruit. All in all, it was a nice neighborhood with some parking off to the side of the buildings. We went on a Sunday morning.

“Wonderful for breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

Truly excellent though nontraditional huevos rancheros! Slowness of service others have mentioned was bearable on a Sunday morning, and compensated for by friendly staff and a cozy atmosphere.

“Great local cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012

Agree with others that service is slow, but they do a lot of catering too which slows down in house orders. Fantastic food and great variety of fresh options. The atmosphere is awesome. Small and cozy dining room, especially in comparison to the tourist traps that are common in the area. We are locals and love this spot!

“Great food, but slooow.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2012

Painfully slow. Limited seating. It's an event, though. The food is worth waiting for - if you are not in a hurry.

“Wildly slow”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2012

Not sure if they weren't ready for increased volume for Columbus day, but the service was very slow. It's a small place and there were two servers, so maybe the problem was in the kitchen? The food was delicious, admittedly, but after waiting 45 minutes for it, we were both in grumpy moods and didn't enjoy it as much as we would have with a shorter wait.
