Well the omelets are still good, but after the move to down the block I think they lost something. I had the scrambled eggs (good) home fries (okay) and biscuits and gravy (weird taste and not good biscuits). The coffee was good and they sure...More

Was here and had breakfast. It was awesome. Weekends are busy and weekdays the wait time is not long. The servers are awesome and my personal experience was great

Two friends and I ate at Bill of Fare on a Thursday around 11:00 am. The service was great. The food came quickly and was delicious. We had French toast, pancakes, and omelettes! I highly recommend this "hole in the wall" local joint!

This place is great. The "marquardt" was the best omelet I've ever had, the coffee was delicious, the staff were very friendly, and the service was fast. If you haven't been here yet, do yourself a favor and check it out. Do not let the...More

The building looks like a old barn, and not that well maintained. Inside, the atmosphere is a bustling, dish-clanking, old-style restaurant. We've been for breakfast several times, and it can get really crowded. But, they do server you quickly and move you out of there...More
