Awful service. Ordered breakfast: not very time consuming. Watched others come in after, order, eat, and leave before we got our food. Offered to buy our drinks and leave and suddenly food was ready. Ate then sat waiting for check until one waitress finally yelled...More

The food is good, the staff is pleasant, and the service is pretty quick. It's been updated on the outside but I like how Avanti's probably looks on the inside like it did in the 70's. It's clean and pretty well kept but it's certainly...More

If you want an early morning breakfast before you head out to Presque Isle to fish or watch the birds, Avanti's is open at 5:30 a.m. We had scrambled eggs, bacon and toast, and they were fine. Coffee likewise. I gather from reading a couple...More
