Great breakfast menu and service with a smile. Eggs Benedict was about the best I've had, with very fresh spinach added. Side of grapefruit is a whole fruit halved and sectioned, ripe & sweet on its own. Steak & eggs were done to perfection (steak was not overcooked, as often happens). Good prices, but note CASH ONLY.

While the food was reasonable when we went to check out we were advised no credit cards accepted. I didn't notice a sign but in today's world a restaurant that doesn't accept credit cards for payments is certainly out of date.

Arrived to a less than half full restaurant. The hostess proceeded to seat us right next to a large table with three toddlers who were screaming and running around. I asked to please be seated on the opposite side of the restaurant which she did albeit with an attitude. Once seated we waited quite a while until a server passed by the table empty handed to say she'd be there in a minute. She then proceeded to bus a table while we patiently waited to have our orders taken. The server eventually returned after taking the dishes to the kitchen. She then brought water and asked if we'd like anything else to drink. By this time we'd had more than enough time to to decide what we wanted to eat. When we stated water would be fine, she said okay and then stated she'd be back to take our order and left. We watched her go get a rag and proceed to wipe down the dirty table. But this point we'd been essentially ignored for at least 15 minutes while we were clearly waiting to order. We left. It doesn't surprise me that on a lovely spring evening when surrounding restaurants were packed to the brim with customers that this place was 2/3 empty. So many intriguing little eateries on Shoen Place...skip this one.

Met friends here for lunch, service was good, Turkey Rueben Sandwich was delicious, perfect for my taste with plenty of filling and thankfully not a huge roll. The place is always busy but we enjoyed our catch-up conversation without distractions.

Although often crowded, The Coal Tower is a terrific place for all meals, especially breakfast - in a unique setting. It is a Pittsford landmark.
