We went Ernie's after being told about it from our hotel. The place is easy to miss but located right in the market street area in downtown. about 8 tables and a few locals hanging out drinking coffee reminds me of home. Check it out, fast service, good coffee and reasonable prices.

I go here all the time for breakfast. Nothing fancy, just a nice diner with great food!

Eating breakfast at Ernie's is an institution in Roanoke. It isn't a posh place and some people might be bothered by the greasy spoon atmosphere. But one should look past this issue - it is truly a great experience!

If you are looking for a great breakfast spot, this is it. No it's not IHOP with a million options, but the menu is diverse and the food is great. It's great place to start a Saturday morning walk around hte downtown market.

This restaurant was wonderful!!!!

I visited with friends for breakfast on a Saturday morning. We actually did not get there until 11:30am but they serve breakfast until 2pm on Saturday.

Food-was so very good!!! I had scrambled eggs that were cooked perfectly, bacon, and potatoes. I also had a pancake, very good! The coffee was good too.

Atmosphere-quaint little place near the market square. The place was decorated very well with local pictures on the wall and "hand" chairs. Yes, I said chairs that are in the shape of hands. Very unique

Staff-great service, very personable and felt like we were neighbors and visited every day.

Cost-so very reasonable. I believe my entire meal was under $10.

Would definitely return when back in Roanoke.
