It was a bustling Sunday morning at the restaurant, but the wait was short for a table outside. The brunch menu options were very intriguing. We ordered the coconut French toast, spinach & feta omelet, eggs with apple-maple sausage, and raspberry pancakes. We savored every bite and surrendered to our taste buds. Everything was fresh and delicious!

Kaleena, our server, was world class; however, the restaurant is all hard surfaces and so noisy you can barely have a conversation. Coffee is $ 3.50 and breakfast costs in the $15 range. The food was good, but not great.

PLUMS CAFÉ offers an amazing breakfast, buffet and lunch menu. My wife ordered the Specialty Omelet with bacon, ham, feta cheese, olives and avocado, with a side of fresh fruit; I ordered another Specialty Omelet with bacon, cheddar cheese, mushrooms, onions and spinach, with a side of potatoes – plus a couple of their unique apple-maple sausage links. The food arrived quickly, and everything on both dishes was very tasty, perfectly cooked, and delicious. Service was excellent, and prices reasonable. Our only issue was the high level of noise in the dining area. BTW, you know this is an upscale restaurant when there is a valet parking service right outside! Anyways, it was a terrific breakfast experience and we definitely recommend it.

We are their on a weekday and the service was good. They refilled coffee and asked if we needed anything else.

The biscuit and gravy breakfast tasted awful. The bacon and egg breakfast was good. Overall I feel they are overrated and will not return

Great food and service. The service was excellent and when asked, several recommendations were made and ordered. We were not disappointed with the suggestions. The Vietnamese pork and egg bowl, Plum’s biscuit and gravy, Santa Fe eggs Benedict and the Campfire trout and eggs were all excellent. All in the party said that a return trip is needed.
