I ate here this week while visiting friends in the area. It was their pick and they know what a great restaurant Ballard Street Cafe is! I had breakfast at 11 AM and my friends had lunch. Outstanding food and service!

This is the type of family place where you put the feed bag on. Great food with more than ample portions. Everything we had was wonderful and looking at other diners plates gave us ideas for next time.

My husband and I work untraditional schedules and love being able to come here around noon (or later) and get breakfast! Super inexpensive for good sized portions. This is a no-frills, down-home cafe where the service is friendly and the food is consistently great.

We grabbed brunch at Ballard Street Cafe while out shopping in the area. The food was very good, and the friendly staff gave the place the feel of an old fashioned type diner.

We eat at Ballard Street at least once a month. The food is down home cooking with breakfast served all day. Our favorites include fried catfish, chicken fried steak (in 2 sizes), BLT, veggie plate and pancakes.

We stopped here in our way to a football game and it was like we stepped back in time. The restaurant was packed full but everyone was being served in a timely manner. All of our food tasted like it was cooked by our grandmother’s....More

Very busy restaurant which tells me they are good. Short wait time for a table. Server was quick to get drink orders and return to get food orders. Food came out in reasonable time even though they were packed with diners. Food was great! Atmosphere...More
