“Horrible food, felt like I got ripped off on the 3 egg breakfast. I will never eat there again.”
Review of Farmhouse Cafe

I tried it out today and ordered the 3 egg breakfast. The food took forever, about an hour. Way too long for a bacon and eggs dish. The food tasted like garbage. The potatoes that were supposed to be hash browns tasted half cooked, like they had been boiled, not grilled, no brown texture to it at all like a hash browns should be. The eggs were ok. the bacon tasted like it had been microwaved. I felt ripped off for the price I paid. I feel for the horrible meal they are serving it should maybe be $2.99, not worth the amount they are charging, almost $10 or more. The waitress was horrible, couldn't remembered things we asked for. When we waited a very long time for our food, she never updated us till we were about to walk out after waiting too long. I worked in the restaurant industry many years and I have never seen a place mess up a bacon, egg and hash brown dish like this place. To the owners if you are reading this post, you should be ashamed of yourselves for serving filth like this to your customers. If a customer can make a better dish at home, why are they ever going to come back to your restaurant? Do you think people are stupid? I feel like I was ripped off, and I will never, ever, ever stop in the Farmhouse to eat again.

Still some of the weakest and most awful coffee I've ever experienced.
Real coffee cream may help but reckon it's simply not strong enough, or time to upgrade the beans !
Greasy discolored ceilings an easy fix but persist. Bright overhead tube lighting creates a stale atmosphere.
Breakfast still tasty, service fine, and the Farmhouse fills a needed niche but old ways ways die hard, it would seem.
Boomy 80's music has been corrected, so somebody figured that out !
Everything said....I'm still a customer one year along from last review, food is tasty, but gad.....that coffee !

An unexpected treat! I had company from the mainland and we all loved the quaint home like feel of the place. We were having a hard time finding an all day Breakfast and I'm so pleased a local at another restaurant suggested he Farmhouse. I felt the warmth and love of being at Grandmas! Loved all the salt and pepper shakers too. Basic home cooked food, just what we wanted
