I really expected just a little bit more from this place. Eggs didn't seem quite right. Isn't there such a thing as powder eggs? Biscuits and gravy were......different. Biscuit was good in the middle but a weird crispy outer layer. For sure not enough gravy. I think they should have a coffee person ready to pour when you're seated. Had to wait quite some time before the waitress came over with the coffee. After the first cup, she did do a good job of refilling it.

The cafe is a very nice and comfy place to eat with good food.
Our waitress on the 23rd, at the table by the window straight down the path, was wonderful!! She made suggestions and provided service before we could think of asking for it.
On the 24th, we sat one table over, and our waitress this time was awful. Gave us crackers instead of crostini. didn't want to give us two cups to divide our soup. We had to was around and ask other waiters/ waitresses to get us butter, jelly, boxes for left overs etc.

The waitress can make or break the experience!!

We have always like the Café at the Pfister. The menu is small, but varied. the food is fresh, well prepared, and tasty. Our server was friendly, helpful and very responsive.
It is one of our favorite lunch spots for a 'nicer' lunch. They serve both breakfast and lunch until 2

I have been coming here for 20 years at Christmastime and it has been a favorite. This time there were so many errors made with our service and food that I was embarrassed for my guests. Toasts were not delivered without asking, juices not delivered without asking, wrong omelet made, etc. Its a beautiful venue and it was quite a shame to have such an experience there. I sure hope they get it together.

Cafe at the Pfister is one of my favorite restaurants. A friend and I enjoyed excellent cobb salads before attending "A Christmas Carol". It was a great afternoon.

The Cafe never disappoints.

Love the Pfister Cafe for a light meal before the theatre. The grilled salmon spinach salad is a favorite. Generous ingredients, always presented in a picture-perfect manner. Service is attentive without
being smothering. The windowed veranda invites gazing at the street-scape, pedestrians, limos.
All and all a good experience. Thank you!

This is one of our standard, always excellent, delicious, and close by, choices for breakfast or lunch with just us or family or visiting friends. The wait staff are friendly and know us on sight. If you get the Pfister Mary - be prepared for not needing a huge meal!

The server was friendly and very quick with bringing our food. The turkey reuben was great, with a lot of tender meat on the sandwich, and the sweet potato fries were excellent.

The bloody Mary's are SO very good, and a nice meal on a skewer, great presentation.
Our breakfast was very good and the history of this hotel is so interesting and the beauty of an old classic hotel is still there. Very friendly staff that is looking to provide great service.
