I tried it out today and ordered the 3 egg breakfast. The food took forever, about an hour. Way too long for a bacon and eggs dish. The food tasted like garbage. The potatoes that were supposed to be hash browns tasted half cooked, like they had been boiled, not grilled, no brown texture to it at all like a... More

Still some of the weakest and most awful coffee I've ever experienced. Real coffee cream may help but reckon it's simply not strong enough, or time to upgrade the beans ! Greasy discolored ceilings an easy fix but persist. Bright overhead tube lighting creates a stale atmosphere. Breakfast still tasty, service fine, and the Farmhouse fills a needed niche but... More

An unexpected treat! I had company from the mainland and we all loved the quaint home like feel of the place. We were having a hard time finding an all day Breakfast and I'm so pleased a local at another restaurant suggested he Farmhouse. I felt the warmth and love of being at Grandmas! Loved all the salt and pepper... More

My wife and I were looking for a place to go and have lunch the other day. We've grown tired of the franchise places that have little or nothing new to offer you for lunch. We'd known of this place but for some reason never got to it. Last Monday that changed. We were warmly greeted, sat immediately, handed menus... More

The name Farmhouse Cafe would lead you to believe it is going to be a great dining experience. It isn't a terrible place to eat, but there are much better places to have breakfast in the area. It does have the usual breakfast menu items, but if you have a glutin allergy (like us) or want something a bit easier... More

My goodness, in this day and age it is surprising not to see at least a couple of healthy alternatives to bacon, eggs, sausages, fried potatoes and toast. Gluten-free options and de-caffeinated coffee or tea were also conspicuously absent from the menu. That said, the Farmhouse Café is what it is…a small-town diner with standard fare and a somewhat tacky... More
