We had brunch here. Service was very efficient. i ordered the Portuguese Omelet which was supposed to have hot Portuguese sausage which i wanted to try. The omelet and the sausage in it was very good but the sausage certainly didn't have any heat which was disappointing. Despite this i enjoyed it and would certainly repeat.

Friendly and welcoming service for breakfast and lunch. Two menus available, one each for breakfast and for lunch, available at all hours of operation. California Chicken wrap included lots of chicken. My spouse enjoyed a basic BLT in this fresh tomato season. Fruit bars, chocolate chip cookies, and scones available for take out.

I went there with my family today. I had the Irish Benny which was great and they had eggs with the usual fixings. Silly thing that was weird was that I think 3 people ready to take our order and the matter of 30 seconds apart. The food was really good compared to what I had there a couple years... More

A great spot for breakfast or an early lunch. They close early especially on Sundays. But the food is good and reasonably priced, although they did just change their menu and increase some prices. Plain old hamburgers are not a tad too pricey if you want anything on them, but still a good buy for breakfast.

No matter what you end up with a good standard American breakfast. Nothing fancy however. Can accomodate egg white omelets and gluten free toast. Cheerful wait staff.

Locals love Foodworks! They offer a wonderful breakfast, brunch and lunch menu with friendly and quick service. The prices are just right! The restaurant is very clean, has delightful bakery items for take out and a nice function room that seats 40+ people.

Have been there many times. It is bright and sunny and clean. No televisions and no bar. A great place for breakfast or lunch. The food is good, service friendly. It is a family owned business. Prices reasonable. Can be crowded on Sunday after church!

Thank Jeanbqueenbee
