Celebrated my mom's 75th birthday at Cake because breakfast is her favorite meal. We have not been here for several years, but the food and service remain excellent. Fritattas, home fries, salad, pork bacon, sausage patties, scrambled egg sandwich and breakfast plate were all tasty!...More

Looking for a place for brunch near my son's university for his birthday. Stumbled upon this gem after doing an internet search. Wow... Highly recommend the breakfast burrito. I think there was a 1/2 dozen of eggs in there.

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent visit here. Menu had lots of choices, excellent service, friendly staff. Priced reasonably, although the desserts were a little high. All in all, I highly recommend.
