My husband and I were pleasantly surprised at the newly updated Glen Oak! Extensive breakfast menu, good selection for lunches. I enjoyed the veggie omelet (made to order) and my husband liked the eggs and sausage. Friendly waitress, nice local spot! Prices are on the high end, but that's probably the location.

This is a diner with booths and tables and a light and airy atmosphere from all of the large windows. They are open for breakfast and lunch and we came for lunch. We were greeted pleasantly and seated immediately. They have an extensive breakfast menu with many items looking quite tasty. My friend had the "Perfect Lunch", which included a... More

We’ve been to the Glen Oak Café several times; mostly for breakfast. Today we decided to stop for lunch. It was Sunday at 12:30 PM and while busy, not full. Pros: • We were given a choice of a booth or a table and were promptly seated at a table. • We ordered a Coffee and an ice tea to... More

Had the lunch combo that comes with a small salad a cup of soup and a half a sandwich for just under $10. Two out of three were a hit. I love salt but the chicken noodle soup was so salty I only had a couple spoon fulls. I opted for the chicken salad sandwich for my half sandwich after... More

A local restaurant operated by members of the same family since opening umpteen years ago. Recently renovated. Nice updated menu. Good food and good service. Very dependable and a nice place for breakfast or lunch. Many locals go at least weekly, some daily. So it is above average. Not your fancy nice date night restaurant. But your sit and talk... More

Serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. Food is ok, not great. Spotty service. OK for an inexpensive meal in a sit-down location. Have a limited alcohol offering. No real bar.

I like going here because I can get anything from a salad, to steak, to breakfast, to desserts. Good prices too.

We tried this diner style place for lunch. I almost rated it a three, but the rotten strawberries with my egg dish lowered my rating to a two. Any place that would cut up and serve such poor looking fruit obviously does not put much care into their cooking. The service was efficient, but quite unfriendly. The fresh squeezed juice... More

Glen Oak is a great place to bring your family and eat relatively cheap. The food there is average, unless you have the crepes which are excellent. The place is clean and the staff is friendly. It's located near the downtown which is nice if you want to shop. I gave it a rating of 3 because that would be... More
