We were the first customers there on a weekday. We had wonderful service and great food. Each time we have been there we have only had breakfast, so I'm not sure how the lunch is. However, the breakfast is very good!!

We've eaten here for years. It's so fun to grab a seat at the long bar and chat with the people next to you, as well as those working behind the counter. The food is great, the biscuits are perfect, PERFECT, I say, and the breakfast burrito is so huge and so delicious you will not need lunch. If you... More

The kids crush the pancakes. Mom loves the veggie scromlett and the southwestern Benedict is over the top. We make it a point to eat here every trip to CB. Be prepared to wait in season. It's worth it

I have had some good breakfasts here, but usually I find the service to be poor and even rude. I do not like eating at this place. the food is ok, but rude and unfriendly service is intolerable.

I think McGill's has some of the best biscuits and gravy I have ever tasted, their biscuits are a perfect texture, not so soft that they become soggy with gravy but not too tough that they're hard to cut with fork. The service was fast (although it wasn't crowded when we were there) and their coffee was very good. I... More

We stopped in just before closing and they let us in anyway and we're wonderful! Adorable place! Fab bacon and eggs, and I love a place that gives two small pancakes in lieu of toast as an option. We sat at the bar and chatted with the adorable waitress😊.

We first came for breakfast. Lots of food at a great price. Interesting combination of scrambled eggs and an omelette called a "scramlette" or "scromlette"; however it is named, it was great. Service was prompt, friendly and attentive. Apparently there is a new cook; he seems to be doing a great job. We returned for lunch a few days later... More
