“LOVE IT!!! Great Mexican & breakfast served all day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2012

This is a local cafe with an extensive menu, especially breakfast options. I'm adding this to our list of weekend places where breakfast is served all day. Lots of vegetarian options. Since most items are either Mexican or Mexican infused, you can get peppers, onions, tomatoes, salsa, sour cream, etc. in anything. They also have great breakfast like cinnamon swirl French toast, deluxe oatmeal with blueberries, etc. Not the place to go if you're in a hurry. This is a new favorite spot for us.

“Used to be really good breakfast, not anymore”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2012

This place used to be the best place in town for breakfast and we were really looking forward to it when we went yesterday and it was very poor. The service was good but the food quality is not the same. I ordered the Machaca and it was disgusting. The beef was tough and the eggs had no flavor. My friend ordered the chorizo and eggs-again very flavorless. My niece was 14 and order the Farmer's omelet--it was $9.49!! I could not believe how much the food quality went down and how expensive the breakfast was. The only thing good was a single pancake I ordered and that was $3.99! Needless to say, we won't be coming back. This place used to be fabulous and now it is just disgusting and over priced!

“Good breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2012

DW and I are advocates for the Capitol View Cafe, and try to get there for breakfast on a fairly regular basis.

Just basic breakfast today. We each had eggs and bacon. One of us had cakes while the other enjoyed french toast.

A bit slow getting menus during this visit, but the food was excellent. Nice thick strips of bacon.

They have an extensive breakfast menu, although we were conservative in our ordering today.

Nothing special but friendly staff. Wish it had more hearty, whole grain, healthy food.
