Great breakfast, plentiful and crisp thick bacon done to perfection as is the whole breakfast. Great coffee and always filling your cup. Wonderful service, fast and helpful with a smile. Comfort food at its best.

Try Baldie's breakfast specials. You can't go wrong. The weekend special was three eggs, hash browns, toast, and your choice of bacon or sausage for $8.25. How can you go wrong? But this is just one example. They make an excellent hot turkey sandwich, meatloaf, or liver and onions. This is what you expect of American comfort food, and based... More

We came for lunch before an appointment in the area and we were not disappointed. We waited not too long for a table and were ushered to our seats. We passed tables of appetizing food. I had my standard morning out meal--Joe's special (eggs with spinach, ground beef, onions, and sometimes mushrooms. In addition to looking nice, it tasted delicious.... More

The minestrone soup was incredible delicious and hot. The spices and mixture of fresh vegetables and noodles were amazing. But there was more to the meal which was only good but definitely not superb. The stuff pepper had an excellent sauce and was topped with melted cheese. The portion was huge but the entire meal was only barely warm. Also... More

There's a bit of a wait for a dining booth, but they serve a full plate so prepare to take some leftovers if you want to have dessert. I like that they have great Bleu cheese dressing for their dinner salad and with a nice glass of wine it got me prepared for a great meal. I hear their breakfasts... More

Family owned café with very good food and portion size for breakfast. Entrees were reasonably priced and service was pretty friendly especially with the refills of coffee.

Baldie's has great food, and you never leave hungry. It's located at the end of a small strip mall of food places and 7/11. They have lots of choices, and are a local favorite. They tend to get busy at the normal meal times, but the food is well worth the wait. Their omelettes are fluffy, I get crispy hash... More
