Florence wanted coconut. Heather needed a blueberry scone. All I wanted was coffee, but once I saw the menu, I knew my diet was done for. This is a great great affordable friendly fun place for breakfast. It's no place for a diet. Just eat!

We really enjoyed our breakfast here. Omelets are large and delicious. French toast was the same.

There was a 30 minute wait but there was plenty of seating and they even have Trivial Pursuit cards to keep people occupied.

Servers are quick and attentive.

We love breakfast at The Downy Flake. Their freshly made donuts are out of this world.

The staff is friendly and very efficient.

Their Eggs Benedict are soooo very good and is served with delicious home fries. Also, not to be missed is the Downy scramble - Scrambled eggs with steamed broccoli, chopped tomatoes and melted cheese.

And, if you are not watching your waistline their homemade biscuits with sausage gravy is very good!

I was so looking forward to eating at the Downeyflake- and was so disappointed to find that the blueberry pancakes they are supposedly known for actually use blueberries out of can!! So awful. Had to pay $3.00 extra for real maple syrup... and the sausage was ok. All around very disappointing and to make matters worse it was $62.00 for 3 for breakfast. Really??? for bad pancakes. So sad that this institution is just riding on its name. I know the donuts are good, but come on.
