1st time eating here and what a nice find. They serve breakfast and lunch only. I had their French Toast and bacon special. Very good used homemade bread and bacon was crispy. They have pancakes, omelets and other breakfast items that looked good. Definitely will return to try the other items on the menu.

Felt like the 60's in here. Very clean, nice waitstaff. The food came quickly and was tasty. My only criticisms - corned beef hash should be grilled to a crispy crust on the outside, tender on the inside. Took a long time to get our tab, as the server was visiting with friends on the other side of the establishment.... More

Last time we were here was 2012 and I left a raving review. Nothing has changed. LOVE this place! Wish it was close to home. So old fashioned with delicious food, coffee, and hot chocolate! One of the highlights of our weekend getaway to TC. Ellen, our server, was great! Go there and enjoy!

Our server was a veteran in her profession. We brought four hangry kids in and she had a smile on their faces before they settled in. The manager was constantly aware of any needs of the patrons. This proved to be a quick, tasty & economical option, on a cold snowy morning.

Now I understand why Round's is always so busy. Food and service is great in a retro diner atmosphere. Homemade corned beef hash is a beautiful start to anyone's busy day.

Always good and dependable for breakfasts. Very good coffee and a bottomless cup. Buckwheat pancakes, eggs properly cooked with soft yolks when requested. Omelettes nicely served, as well. Rounds has been in the same location, seemingly for for ever. Friendly, long time staff.

Ended up here when another favorite TC breakfast place closed down. There is a nice historical story told on the front of the menu, which makes one think that they are probably making breakfast the same way they did the day the doors opened. Good call! Nice sized portions, they bring you a personal carafe of coffee, they use real... More

Standard breakfast fare with good portion sizes. They were friendly and quick to accommodate a request to substitute potatoes for toast due to a gluten allergy (for a small up charge). We did seem to wait longer than others. The food was fresh and hot.
