My husband and I love going out for breakfast and the Optimist Cafe was on our list. The building is very unique and very old. There are many rooms in which to eat and a small area where you can purchase pastries and scones, etc....More

Had home fries with breakfast sandwich. Home fries were a bit over done with a bit too much seasoning on them. Breakfast sandwich was good. Coffee was very good as was the service. Will try again.

After an exhaustive review of venues for our nephew's rehearsal dinner, our daughter found the perfect spot. The Optimist Cafe was a delightful setting for our celebration. The restaurant serves only breakfast and lunch, so you are able to have the entire space for your...More
