Chicken Fried steak was great according to my husband. He said the biscuits really made the meal. I had the Two, Two, Two with a side of potatos that were good. Not pricey, great spot for breakfast.

The coffee quality was OK, a little slow personnel, but great ambiance and location.

Best to avoid the weekends which does get noisy. Or else, sit outside on the patio.
We went on a Thursday at 8:00 am and it was not crowded. Food is very good. The muffins and scones are fantastic. The next day, we went to the bakery next door and bought the day old ones for half price. Still very good microwaved with butter.

We have been long time fans of the Coffee Emporium and have been going here for lunch and breakfast for years. The food is always delicious and in the past the service has been very good, but this past Sunday was a huge disappointment when it came to service. The restaurant was crowded as it was a holiday weekend, but I still expected better service once we were seated. It took our waiter about 15 minutes after we were seated to get a drink order in and then at least another 10 minutes for 4 waters & 4 coffees to be brought to the table. We also had to wait for what seemed an eternity to get a refill on our coffee and every time the waiter or any other staff member started to walk toward our table we tried to wave them down for a drink refill, but they just turned away. When I go out to breakfast, I expect the coffee to be refilled at regular intervals especially when there were plenty of waiters, and busboys walking around. It almost seemed as if the waiters & waitress were only going to pour coffee for their selected section and not anyone else. Despite the disappointment in service our breakfast were still really good, so I would recommend it to a friend and I would go back, but they really need to get their staff in gear!

Everything on the menu looked delicious. Our food was just as good, if not better, than we had expected. The service was excellent! Very attentive, precise, and timely. For the mimosas they brought an individual carafe of orange juice and a mini bottle of champagne that was so cute, for make your own mimosas. Love. It was an awesome experience.
