We found this place by accident several years ago and now visit it every time we come to town. Waitresses always make sure you have everything you need. Good food and variety. We do breakfast here.

I meet with friends here for breakfast occasionally, and the Tin Can Cafe always comes through. It's your basic excellent diner breakfast but goes beyond the basic with outstanding portions to go along with the quality. Fast service too. You cannot go wrong here for breakfast.

I am not sure what took me so long to visit the place. Perhaps because it is smallish in size, but the food is great and the wait staff very attentive. It is downtown and had super easy parking. I had my standard fare, Eggs toast & bacon with Grits. Also had my first taste of Scrapple it taste better... More

We stumbled upon the Tim Can Cafe by accident. What a nice surprise to find a local place to eat. The atmosphere is cozy and friendly. The service and food were exceptional. Will visit again if we are ever back in the area.

Pleasantly surprised to see scrapple on the menu! Ok, so that gave away that I'm not a Floridian. Cooked to perfection! I also had biscuits and gravy - THE BEST EVER!!! My husband had an 8 or 10 oz ribeye, eggs, hasbrowns, and grits...love love love. This is now our breakfast place!!! Sometimes there is a wait, but trust us... More

Nothing fancy, local place with good food and service. Home style cooking served in large portions. We got there just in time before the crowd arrived and there was allot of folks waiting.

Undistinguished cinder block building housing very distinguished breakfast menu. Try the 7 oz. Angus steak and 3 eggs for $4.79. Then try the fantastic pork chops and eggs. This is definitely a locals joint, but it welcoms newcomers.
