Great place to meet for breakfast or coffee in the morning. Good and original dishes, types of omelettes and skillet meals. Great service from very nice people.

Creative breakfast/brunch food, but a bit expensive. Not the right place if you are just looking for a traditional breakfast (go to Annie across the street for that), but if you want more creative food, this is fine.

We came to Alexander's Breakfast & Lunch, after having driven past it numerous times. We came early, so we opted for breakfast. The restaurant is simple and clean. The staff is very friendly and efficient. We ordered the 3 brothers breakfast burrito which has chicken sausage, scrambled eggs, onion, tomato, cheddar cheese, avocado, sour cream and salsa verde. And it... More

Hubby had the "3 Brothers Burrito" and I had the "Bacon and Leek omelettes" with rye bread and bottomless coffees. We came very early around 8.45 am on a Saturday morning. The restaurants started to fill up around 9.30 am. Come early so you don't have a long wait. We enjoyed our breakfast and it was a big portion that... More

Very good variety for breakfast, great presentation and reasonably priced. Quite noisy when busy and it was very busy.

We tried this restaurant because we were starving and it was there. The coffee was strong and smooth. The food was delicious and the portions were well worth it. My wife had the fluffiest pancakes I have ever seen and were awesome. My egg burrito was a good and the salsa verde was the best I have had. Great place... More

Went here because wanted to try someplace new and thought it sounded good. First the place was very clean and bright with a nice hostess who seated us immediately. We waited quite a while for water, coffee and service but finally came. The coffee was VERY good but that unfortunately was the highlight for three out of four of us.... More

This review is all about the food. Alexander's is a busy place. Service is fast and attentive. It's essentially an upscale diner, so decor is minimal. The food is very good. The breakfast potatoes are always perfectly done, and the dish I put in the title is amazing. All at a good price point, I should add.

Alexander serves excellent lunch or breakfast dishes. The potatoes are really good with a little spice.

Took visiting relatives for breakfast. Love the side windows providing a bright sunny atmosphere. Very clean/well presented. Staff was very attentive, menu offered something for everyone. Portion sizes were very generous. Will definitely be a repeat customer!
