The most aweful experience. WILL NEVER COME BACK. Waitress name Amy (tall woman short blonde hair). Brought everyone's food except mine (2x2x2 WITH FRENCH TOAST). After about 15 mins comes by and says just waiting on french toast. After another 10 mins brings me order...with pancakes. I said I did not order pancakes. She argued with us as if I was wrong. Told her just bring me eggs, bacon, and regular toast. Another 10 mins comes back with attitude almost trowing plate across table. I told her she was rude and didn't care just walked away.More

Very disappointed. I had come here a few times but this time we had a waitress who was very rude. Our waitress, Amy (tall, short blonde hair), was extremely rude. My dad had ordered a 2x2x2 specifically with French toast. We received all our food,...except my dad. She came by and specifically said “I’m just waiting for them to be done with your FRENCH TOAST” and then she comes back a while later with the meal with pancakes instead of French toast. My dad said “I did not order pancakes”. She continues to say that he did and looks at the receipt that it is what he ordered. We all said “no he didn’t. And you just came here a while ago saying that you were waiting for French toast”. She had an attitude as if we were lying. My dad then asked if she could please bring him the 2x2x2 with just plain toast because he did not want to wait anymore. She comes back with the meal and the pancakes (that he did not order), slams the plates on the table and says in a snarky attitude “on the house, would you like some jelly?” (Note: she did not take it off the bill so it was not on house) we told her she was very rude and she insisted that we were wrong. She could have easily apologized for not bringing the French toast, admitted she was wrong, and my dad would have no problem ordering something else. Instead she insisted we were wrong after she had just come by earlier saying she was waiting for the FRENCH TOAST to be done. We did not tip her and I will not be coming back. So rudeMore

First time visiting their new location. Spacious, bright, clean. Our waitress was excellent. Didn’t have rolls for the foot long hotdog so changed my order to a tuna melt and so glad I did. It was plentiful and the grilled rye bread it came on...looked homemade. It wad loaded with fresh tuna salad. Definitely plan on returning next time we pick apples at Lyman Orchard.More

We brought our daughter and grandchildren to celebrate their birthdays at this highly recommended cafe. The dining area is open and spacious with high ceilings and an open airy feeling. The food was good but not exceptional. Bacon was served limp and undercooked which is...a pet peeve of mine. if you’re a breakfast specialty restaurant please get the bacon right!! The service was substandard. Water requested but forgotten. Orders weren’t taken for over 15 minutes after being seated. Overall a very unfestive birthday breakfast.More

I stopped here after a hike to grab a breakfast sandwich after hearing great things. I placed the order online and it was ready in 5 minutes! I got a ham, egg and cheese and it came with hash browns. There was so much food!...Overall it was good, the potatoes crispy, and the sandwich not greasy. I would recommend a stop in!More
