    Great food and incredibly quick service. Will be going back. The place is mostly reasonably priced, but $4.50 for a cup of black coffee is insane.

    Our server was FABULOUS! Seriously so great on checking on us despite how busy it was. It was very loud and hard to hear each other- my own fault for not taking how busy it is into consideration though. The food portions were HUGE! The quality- not the best- not bad by any means… just not over the top. I would prefer smaller portions with quality- had a little bit of diner vibes for me personally. The drinks were great- cappuccino and a very mimosa- highly recommend both! The menu is vast- I’m sure other options weren’t as greasy as what I got- a soufflé omelette and GDC potatoes. I cannot say enough good things about the whole staff though- they’re very kind and attentive and great with recommendations. I was hoping to find a quiet and elevated breakfast spot with coffee and booze and great food - which is a unicorn itself- this place wasn’t it but I would feel comfortable taking my kids here or going in a family setting.

    Food & service was great... But I'm not likely to return or recommend. The restaurant is so loud you can't carry on a normal conversation without shouting at your own table. It's tiresome to have discussions shouted.

    The French fries were too done and limp. I normally like the food, but between the noise and the mediocre turkey club, I may not be back. Our server was great.

    Great food, great service, perfect Eggs Benny. We try to dine there at least 2 x month for brunch. I haver tried at least 5 different brunch items from the menu and all of my choices are perfect every time. They should change their name to " Great Day Cafe"

    The waitress was not in the mood to serve. I requested no meat or dairy & named the items in the dish to eliminate. She came back with sour cream on the food and insisted I made no mention of the sour cream. She did not immediately say she would send it back but was more concerned about her interpretation of the conversation. There were a couple of other things she was not welcoming about which made me think I would not be back.

    The service was very good though no offer to refill my empty water cup was ever made. It was noisy but I didn’t mind it that much. I had eggs, bacon and potatoes. There was nothing special about the eggs. Just okay. The potatoes were tasteless, bland and really just not good. The bacon was pretty good. I probably wouldn’t come here again based on this experience.

    This was my first time here. Only 1 out of 4 liked our meals. The pot pie was mostly “gravy”, taco salad had no flavor, pork sandwich was not good. The hot turkey sandwich was ok. I’ve been told what a nice restaurant this is, but was disappointed. When we asked to sit in one of the “alcoves” because it was so noisy in the other areas we were told that those sections are closed after the lunch crowd. Those of us with hearing loss had a tough time enjoying our conversations. Someday I do plan to come to try breakfast.

    Really great food! We always start with the popovers which are fantastic with the pistachio butter👍. I had the tomato basis soup which is my favorite and was in the top three I’ve ever had. My husband had the shrimp special which was also very yummy. Can’t go wrong with the food!! They were super busy that is the only reason for the 3 for service. Everything took really long. Our waitress was great and we tipped her well. It was a peak time so plan ahead if you have somewhere to be. Over all 5 stars!

    In general I love their food and food choices. The last 3 times I went, the fries were cold and wimpy and I’m mad at myself for not sending them back. Yesterday’s visit was at noon and it was busy; but no excuse.

    We went there on Saturday morning. I made a reservation, which I highly recommend, because it was packed! Once we were seated, our server was prompt and friendly. There were so many items on the menu that we wanted to try, but we both ordered Payslie’s favorite, which was amazing! We will definitely go back and try something else.
