I think this place is for sale it should be because the staff are so unpleasant! Sat down for lunch and the waitress wouldn't take the order because the kitchen was too busy.

I'm reading all these positive reviews and wondering how this cafe so badly missed the mark today! I went in for breakfast, to go, and was told I couldn't order a combination of pancakes, sausage, bacon, and eggs. I would have to order them each separately (because they were "too busy" or else they'd let me make a combo?). I... More

We had lunch here and the food was plentiful and delicious. They have a nice, big outside deck under an oak that is really comfortable. Our server was friendly and on the spot with everything we needed. Looking forward to trying out other menu items.

This restaurant was a jewel. It is locally owned and so very affordable. The menu has a wide variety of items including breakfast served until 2 pm(closing time) Our group ate a variety of sandwiches, soups and breakfast and were not disappointed with any selection. They offer both inside and outside dining; but, we only ate outside. The patio is... More

Stopped in for Sunday Brunch. It was fantastic. We sat outside under the wonderful oak tree on the Beautiful patio. Great Service from our waitress, the manager and the other waitress. Everyone genuinely pleasant. Food was homemade and fresh. Will definitely go back

We decided to go out for a late breakfast, and we are always looking for good places close by. We used to go to this restaurant when we moved down here several years ago, but we had not been here for the past 2 years. Wow. We were in for a great surprise. The food was much better than I... More

Went to Englewood for breakfast at our usual place on a Saturday but it was closed. We saw this place with outdoor seating on a big deck under an ancient, shady Oak tree. Decided to give it a try. Served by Penny who was delightful. Mimosas! Excellent, fresh, top quality food! Absolutely will be back. Can't believe the low prices... More

The outdoor seating on a wooden deck under a huge live oak tree gives The Ole Time Cafe a very Key Westy type of feel. Then I found out they have Mimosas. A Key Westy atmosphere AND Mimosas? Yeah, I'm sold already and our food isn't even here yet. Ending this now, will continue soon... (35 minutes later) Ok, I'm... More
