“Unfriendly, borderline rude staff, and pitiful excuse for food”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

If you're not a local don't expect a welcome of any kind. Regulars are treated as old friends but the waitstaff rushes everything except the food. Not a very clean coffee shop and no atmosphere. We've been trying to think of something nice to say but couldn't come up with anything. Try Pete and Peg's Roadhouse as a very wonderful different experience - just a block away

“Go to the Koffee Kup Kafe instead”
Reviewed December 24, 2012

Go to the Koffee Kup Kafe instead of having breakfast at the Other Place because the service will be better, the food will look and taste better, and you'll leave much happier because you'll feel as if you got something for your money.

As is common in most American eating establishments, the art of making a simple omelette is unknown. What is served instead are fried egg wraps! That's what I was served, but the food didn't look nearly as fresh or good as it does at the Koffee Kup.

Many older patrons frequent this venue, and they looked as if they had been occupying their tables for a long time before I arrived, and they were still there when I left. They were not eating. They were just holding down the seats, and many had trouble moving.

Ghoulish fluorescent lights make all look less than their Sunday best, and the dining room with open kitchen "design" look worn out, run down, and would benefit from a fresh coat of paint and new floor covering.

Do yourself a favor and stay hungry.

“This is OUR PLACE”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

This is the place we like to eat breakfast on lazy Saturday or Sunday mornings. It's very laid back, and easy going. The staff is friendly. The food so great. I love the Italian Omelette. It's low carb and amazing! My husband loves the french toast.

“Excellent Breakfast stop”
Reviewed April 21, 2012

I went for breakfast this morning with some friends. The 3 egg veggie omelet was delicious and filling. It came with a biscuit and home fries. Very down-home and friendly atmosphere. Service was quick. Prices very reasonable. I will definitely recommend this place to my friends. Looking forward to trying their lunch and dinner menu.

“Breakfast & Lunch”
Reviewed April 3, 2012

Within walking distance of my Office in Downtown St. Cloud, Affordable, Large Seating Area, Outside Tables on the Sidewalk, Most of the Servers/Owners are Great
General Comments: Some of these mom & pop shops can get a bad rep as being greasy spoons, not providing quality food, mediocre service, etc. etc. The Other Place puts out some good, hot meals & in good time. I've had less than perfect service, but nothing I'd hold against them. I've frequented in the mornings and afternoons, and haven't really found anything that I'm super against at The Other Place. (*I am not a big onion eater - its in their egg salad - Yuck! BUT the ham salad & chicky salad is good.) Lots of good items on the menu, great little location and friendly service and patrons.
