I have eaten at Half-Day Cafe two or three times, and it is always a delight! The food is super delicious, the service is great, and the servers so friendly and competent. I love this restaurant and wished I lived closer so that I could eat there more often.

This is our second time here for breakfast, but my first review. I got the Lemon/blueberry french toast and my husband got the peaches and cream french toast. Both were just okay, not really very satisfying and only slightly sweet. If I am going to splurge and have french toast I would like it to be sweet. I really don't... More

Visiting from Hershey Pa. One of the reasons for our visit to Cincinnati was what we had been told about this café. It is meticulously clean. The service is wonderful. The menu is very creative. Yes, very creative and wonderful food for breakfast is difficult to find. They own it. Huevos Dividiodos with carnitas and Bowl of ? I forgot... More

Second time here while traveling through the area. Excellent service, Bright comfortable atmosphere. Had the mediterranean omelet; peppers,spinach goat cheese three in our party all loved the flavor. The Challah french toast was huge, tasty, but used to having it with cinnamon, not how they make it, we'll be back next time.

We enjoyed a relaxing breakfast this morning. Service was excellent. Lots of choices on the menu. All your usual items plus some unique items. A selection of smoothies, iced coffees and sliced grapefruit with sugar on top that is broiled briefly to caramelize it. We decided on the western omelette and the 'one of' breakfast. We both really liked the... More

Excellent food, friendly service. Stopped here for breakfast and was very pleased. Their broiled grapefruit was unique and refreshing as was the fresh squeezed orange juice. They made me blueberry pecan pancakes which were delicious. The berries were so fresh. Also tried the oatmeal with pecans and dried cranberries. It was very good and even tasted great later cold. Would... More

Haven't been here for breakfast but can attest that the lunch menu is creative and varied. I had the Brie, Gouda and Bacon sandwich which was very good. Couldn't eat it all so brought the second half home. That was a mistake--it didn't re-heat well, so in the future would probably share this with another person. Service was good and... More

This is a popular local place that often requires a wait for a table (very limited seating). The food is pretty good, not great, but freshly prepared. I'm not letting it influence my review too much, but beware that when it's crowded, it's difficult to hold a conversation across a table.

Going out to breakfast is fun for a change of pace, but finding the right place is always difficult. You know the drill. Plenty of choices but the food almost never beats a nice breakfast made at home. As always, I'm basing my comments on the food choices that were made on this our first visit to the Half Day... More

Visited for Brunch, So wife had chicken pot pie and I had the apple cinnamon french toast. The toast was light, fluffy and over an inch thick. Paired with the smoked bacon, the combination was really worth the price.
