I remembered why my wife and I haven't eaten here in several years as I sat waiting, and waiting for our food. It wasn't very busy and I didn't have to wait to order, but we did wait for our food.

I ordered a cuban, which was tasty. My young granddaughter liked her kids cheeseburger ($5.50 for a 3 oz burger with no fries) and my wife had a chicken wrap which didn't have much flavor. We had 1 decaf, 1 tea and 1 water, yet the price was over $27.00 without a tip! As a local, I believe that is rather pricy.

It will be many more years, if at all, when we will return to Buds.

Buds is a little odd in that you order at the counter, find a seat and wait for the server to walk out and call out your name. It probably is more efficient but takes away from the feel
Of being in a restaurant. That being said the Buds breakfast was good deal. Two eggs meat toast for $5. Served hot and as we ordered. Will visit again.

Really impressed by the store. My son received a coupon for an ice cream. Stopped into redeem. Old time general store feel. Wraps, deli sandwiches, ice cream, fountain drinks, coffees, etc. Old fashioned candies; baked goods - generous portions w/ appropriate pricing. Plan to visit again when I'm in the area next time.

We stopped on our way to Great Wolf Lodge. We love trying new places off the beaten path, and this was one of them! Food was good. Simple sandwiches and burgers. Ice cream and coffee drinks. The decor is adorable and lots of little toys and cute things to buy too :)
