Four times out of five we go to Foolish Craig's for breakfast. It has a great organic, hippie vibe, terrific breakfast selections, and a very friendly wait-staff. I have had several of their omelets, benedicts, French toast and breakfast sandwiches. All are made to order, very generous in size, and delicious! Coffee is unlimited and very good, and the offerings... More

Came here with my daughter while we were in town to visit the college, straight from the airport. Got in right away, had a real latte without having to go to another coffee shop for it, food came quickly. I had the corned beef hash, and my daughter had the French toast. Everything was delicious. The only thing I question... More

We always like to visit some of the local places as we travel. We saw this one from Food TV and picked it. As we drove close we notice a line outside. It was nice weather so we decided to wait. It did not take long. It is a small place and they do a good job of getting the... More

We had lunch on a busy day in September. My wife and son tried the Cuban sandwich while I went for the chicken salad sandwich. Both were good and very large servings. Service was top notch and staff very friendly.

Are here for my dads birthday dinner. I had a chicken club sandwich which was awesome and lots of food. Meat was great. Avocado was good. And the sweet potato fries were very good too. Looked good and tasted great! Definitely would eat here again.

Restaurant is plagued with flies. They were nearly in swarms in the indoor seating areas. Everyone dining at same time were taking turns swatting at them as they dive-bombed our food. I can only imagine what the flies were doing in the kitchen prep area. We didn't even finish our lunch and left as we couldn't take the flies any... More

We really enjoyed eating breakfast here. The wait was a little long, but once we were seated the food came quickly.
