I order Eggs Benedict that was advertised as traditional. Well not really. It did not have canadian ham but square, formed ham like from walmart or something. The eggs were over cooked.... More

Camellia Cafe serves a nice breakfast and good food for lunch and dinner, but has consistently slow service and I wouldn't say that the servers are the friendliest in the world. When we went for breakfast they said sit anywhere, So we did. There was one server and one lady behind the bar, which we assumed was working the bar... More

I have eaten breakfast, lunch and dinner at the Camellia Cafe. They offer a good variety of local cuisine. Breakfast prices are in line with other local restaurants and the menu offers many good choices. Lunch and diner menu's are pretty much the same as to what is offered. Roast Beef Po-Boy or any of the seafood dishes are worth... More
